Full Text

1 In ways of sin I wandered long,
My soul by guilt oppressed,
Till Jesus came and in his love
Gave wond’rous peace and rest.

Jesus’ blood covers me,
I was blind, but, hallelujah, now I see,
Jesus’ blood covers me,
I was blind, but now I see.

2 Since Jesus touched my blinded eyes
His beauty I behold,
The glories by his love revealed
Can never half be told. [Refrain]

3 Beneath the Saviour’s blood I dwell,
I know its cleansing power,
My dearest Friend is Christ the Lord,
I’ll trust him every hour. [Refrain]
