Representative Text

1 O Lord, thy mighty grace impart,
Wash me in thy blood;
Take full possession of my heart,
Wash me in thy blood.

Refrain:
Saviour, make me all thine own,
Trusting, trusting thee alone,
Sink me ’neath the crimson flood,
Wash me in thy blood.

2 From outward fault, from secret sin,
Wash me in thy blood;
Let now thy Spirit rule within,
Wash me in thy blood. [Refrain]

3 Array my soul in robes divine,
Wash me in thy blood;
The garments of salvation mine,
Wash me in thy blood. [Refrain]

4 Until that happy day shall break,
Wash me in thy blood;
When in thy likeness I awake,
Wash me in thy blood. [Refrain]
