1. Is your life full of trial, do you seek sweet peace?
You must be redeemed by the blood.
From the chains that have bound you would you find release?
You must be redeemed by the blood.

Refrain
You must be redeemed, you must be redeemed,
You must be redeemed by the blood;
O trust and believe, salvation receive,
You must be redeemed by the blood.

2. Would you press on to glory with a Savior near?
You must be redeemed by the blood.
Would your soul rise in vict’ry over doubt and fear?
You must be redeemed by the blood. [Refrain]

3. Do you seek for His pardon lest your soul shall die?
You must be redeemed by the blood.
For His grace all sufficient doth your spirit cry?
You must be redeemed by the blood. [Refrain]
