1 O the crimson wave, hallelujah!
Now is flowing full and free;
Brother, come, while yet there’s pardon,
And the Saviour pleads with thee.

O the crimson wave now is flowing,
Blessed crimson wave, life bestowing;
Hear the voice that pleads with thy heart today,
Come and wash thy sins away.

2 O the crimson wave, hallelujah!
Now is flowing deep and wide,
From the cleansing fountain opened
At the cross where Jesus died. [Refrain]

3 O the crimson wave, hallelujah!
It will give thee joy within;
‘Tis the blood of Christ redeemed thee,
And will cleanse from ev’ry sin. [Refrain]

4 O the crimson wave, hallelujah!
If its fullness fill thy soul,
Thou wilt sing His love that saves thee,
While eternal ages roll. [Refrain]
