1 In sin I wandered sore and sad
With bleeding heart and aching head,
Till Jesus came and sweetly said,
I’ll take thy sins away.

Thank God for the blood!
Thank God for the blood!
Thank God for the blood
That washes white as snow.

2 I gave my heart, my life, my all
To Him who drank the cup of gall
To raise the guilty from the fall
And take their sins away. [Refrain]

3 The water, Spirit and the blood
Agree, if we but understood,
In making sinners pure and good,
And take their sins away. [Refrain]

4 How wonderful God’s mighty plan!
How grace the awful guilt did span
When He took on the form of man
To take our sins away. [Refrain]

5 We cannot know, we may not tell
How we are saved from death and hell;
Thru faith we know that all is well—
He took our sins away. [Refrain]
