Representative Text

1 My heart is filled with song and praise,
For I am cleansed today;
The precious blood of Christ was shed
To wash all sin away.

O hallelujah to his Name,
This wondrous grace to me is giv’n;
I’m cleansed from sin and now I have
A blessed foretaste of heav’n.

2 I found a pardon full and free,
At Calvary’s crimson flow;
I plunged again beneath that tide,
That washes white as snow. [Refrain]

3 Now I would magnify his grace,
Who pardons every sin;
And then applied the cleansing blood,
To make us pure within. [Refrain]
