Full Text

1 In the blood of Jesus that was shed for me,
My transgressions have been washed away;
Oh, my heart o’erfloweth with His love so free,
And there’s joy in my soul today.

There is joy in my soul,
Oh, glory hallelujah!
Jesus’ blood makes me whole,
Oh, glory hallelujah!
His love and pow’r divine has touched this heart of mine,
And there’s joy, yes, joy in my soul.

2 When I came believing, Jesus took me in,
And forgave the debt I ne’er could pay;
His redeeming blood has canceled all my sin,
And there’s joy in my soul today. [Refrain]

3 I was filled with rapture as my heart believed,
As my all upon the altar lay;
Oh, the wondrous blessing that I there received,
Lives a joy in my soul today. [Refrain]

4 I will sing of Jesus and His pow’r to save,
I will shout His praise while here I stay;
For the great salvation that to me He gave,
Is the joy of my soul today. [Refrain]
