Full Text

1 Nothing but the blood of Jesus in my soul,
Could my sins, like crimson, make as white as wool;
Nothing else could cleanse and make my fully whole,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain:
The cleansing blood, the purifying flood,
The precious blood of Jesus;
My prayer prevails, the blood avails,
The precious blood of Jesus.

2 Nothing else could wash away the guilt of years,
Tho’ I weep forever my repentant tears
Nothing else for cleansing to my soul appears,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Nothing but the blood can save from inbred sin,
Nothing else can sanctify and make me clean,
Nothing but the blood can keep me pure within,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the precious fountain, opened deep and wide,
Flowing, freely flowing from my Savior’s side;
Let me dwell forever ‘neath its healing tide,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
