Representative Text

1 Jesus, see me at thy feet,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
Thou alone my need canst meet,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

Refrain:
No! no! Nothing do I bring,
Buy by faith I’m clinging
To thy cross, O Lamb of God!
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

2 See my heart, Lord, torn with grief,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
Me unpardoned do not leave,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

3 Dark, in deed, the past has been,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
Yet in mercy take me in,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

4 As I am, O hear me pray,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
I can come no other way,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

5 All that I can do is vain,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
I can ne’er remove a stain,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.

6 Lord, I cast myself on thee,
Nothing but thy blood can save me;
From my guilt, O set me free,
Nothing but thy blood can save me.
