1 Mercy speaks by Jesu’s blood,
Hear and sing, ye sons of God,
Justice satisfied indeed,
Christ hath full atonement made.

2 Jesu’s blood speaks loud and sweet,
Here all Deity can meet,
And without a jarring voice,
Welcome Zion to rejoice.

3 Should the law against her roar,
Jesu’s blood still speaks with power;
"All her debts were cast on Me,
And she must and shall go free."

4 Peace of conscience, peace with God,
We obtain through Jesu’s blood;
Jesu’s blood speaks solid rest,
We believe, and we are blest.

5 When the blood of sprinkling cries,
Clouds are banished from the skies;
Every attribute divine,
In their greatest glory shine.

6 Jesu’s blood speaks life and power,
And in every trying hour,
Trusting this almighty voice,
Zion must and shall rejoice.

7 Would the Christian walk in love,
Circumspect and godly prove,
Then be this his constant aim,
On the blood of Christ to lean.

8 Here’s his strength to will and do,
And whatever he goes through,
This should be his only plea,
"Jesu’s blood was shed for me."

9 O ye wretched sinners base,
Sunk in sin and sad disgrace;
Hear the blood of sprinkling cry,
Come, and you shall never die.

In 1805 he removed to Manchester, becoming minister of a chapel in Rochdale Boad, where he continued until his death, in January, 1844. Gadsby was for many years exceedingly popular as a preacher of the High Calvinist faith, and visited in that capacity most parts of England.
