Representative Text

1 One drop of the blood,
One drop of the blood,
He shed upon Calvary’s brow,
Will cleanse me within,
Will free me from sin,
And make me e’en whiter than snow.

Refrain:
Whiter than show,
Yes, whiter than snow.
One drop of the blood, from Calvary’s brow,
Will cleanse me within, and free me from sin,
And make my soul e’en whiter than snow.

2 One drop of the blood,
One drop of the blood,
He gave as a ransom for me,
Will cleanse ev’ry stain,
Remove ev’ry pain
Which now is thy spirit may be. [Refrain]

3 One drop of the blood,
One drop of the blood,
Oh, sprinkle it now in Thy love;
Oh, save me today,
And save me for aye,
And fit me for heaven above. [Refrain]
