Representative Text

1 Only the blood of Jesus,
Is my hope and plea;
Only the blood of Jesus
Shed on Calvary.

Refrain:
Only the blood can wash our sins away,
Only the blood can wash our sins away.

2 Only the blood of Jesus,
Naught of self I claim;
Only the blood of Jesus
Can remove the stain. [Refrain]

3 Only the blood of Jesus,
This I surely know,
Only the blood of Jesus
Cleanses white as snow. [Refrain]

4 Only the blood of Jesus,
Can my joys reveal;
Only the blood of Jesus
Can my spirit seal. [Refrain]
