1 List, the Spirit calls to thee,
Will you be saved by the blood?
Jesus died to make you free,
Will you be saved by the blood?
Pardon freely given,
Cleansing you for heaven.

Refrain:
Will you be saved,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb;
Will you be saved,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb.

2 Sinner, now this blessing claim,
Will you be saved by the blood?
Thro’ the dear Redeemer’s name,
Will you be saved by the blood?
Claim Him as you Savior,
He can save forever. [Refrain]

3 He can wash you white as snow,
Will you be saved by the blood?
And the witness you may know,
Will you be saved by the blood?
You can know the hour
Of His dying power. [Refrain]

4 Christ did drink that cup for all,
Will you be saved by the blood?
Don’t reject the Spirit’s call,
Will you be saved by the blood?
Grace is all abounding,
Joy thro’ heaven resounding. [Refrain]
