Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 Must I in sinful bondage be,
Deprived of peace and liberty,
When in the promise I can see
The blood of Jesus cleanseth?

Refrain:
The blood, the blood,
The precious blood of Jesus;
The blood will work a perfect cure,
Will cleanse the heart and keep it pure;
The blood, the blood,
The precious blood of Jesus.

2 Must I be doubting, full of fear,
And gloom obscure my pathway here,
Be up and down in life’s career?
The blood of Jesus cleanseth. [Refrain]

3 Must I be under guilt and sin,
And have its blighting force within,
Beset by wrong, no vict’ry win?
The blood of Jesus cleanseth. [Refrain]

4 Must I suppose I’m right today,
Tomorrow think I’ve gone astray,
Let demons hold me in dismay?
The blood of Jesus cleanseth. [Refrain]

5 Must I by Satan be accused,
And with his galling yoke abused,
Until at length from heav’n refused?
The blood of Jesus cleanseth. [Refrain]
