Saved Through the Blood

Representative Text

1 I'm nothing but a broken reed,
No good have I within;
My mind is full of carnal thoughts,
My heart corrupt with sin;
I cannot bear this load of guilt,
I'm faint and weary now;
I'll bring my burden, Lord, to Thee,
And at Thy feet I'll bow;
I'll bring my burden, Lord, to Thee,
And at Thy feet I'll bow.

2 I come, dear Jesus, as I am,
I can no more delay;
In mercy, O, forgive my sins,
And wash them all away;
As Thou hast promised, I believe,
By faith accept Thy word;
I claim Thy grace and pard'ning love,
I trust Thy cleansing blood;
I claim Thy grace and pard'ning love,
I trust Thy cleansing blood.

3 I know that Thou has pardon'd me,
Yet in my heart remains
A root of bitterness that brings
Distress and grief and pains;
I must have freedom now, dear Lord,
Again I come to Thee;
And seek thro' Thine own precious blood,
For perfect purity;
And seek thro' Thine own precious blood,
For perfect purity.

4 Just now I feel Thy blood applied,
This moment I believe
That thou dost cleanse and sanctify
The witness I receive.
O blessed rest, continual peace,
O perfect love divine!
For all I have to Thee is giv'n,
And Thou art wholly mine;
For all I have to Thee is giv'n,
And Thou art wholly mine.

5 Since Jesus in my heart abides,
No more in deep distress,
But gladly, peacefully I tread
The way of holiness.
'Tis Jesus thro' His precious blood
Hat wrought this change in me;
All praise and glory evermore
Be given, Lord, to Thee;
All praise and glory evermore
Be given, Lord, to Thee.
