1 Praise the Lord for His salvation!
Sing His mercies full and free,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb;
’Tis the Christian’s shout of triumph,
’Tis the contrite sinner’s plea,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain:
Saved! saved by the blood of the Lamb;
Saved, saved by the blood of the Lamb;
He died in my place,
And He keeps me by His grace,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb.

2 There is now no condemnation,
For He takes my sins away;
Saved by the blood of the Lamb;
In the comfort of His Spirit,
I am walking day by day,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb. [Refrain]

3 Out of every tribe and nation,
There shall come a mighty throng,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb;
When before the throne they gather,
They shall lift the joyful song,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb. [Refrain]

4 In the house of many mansions,
There’s a home for you and me,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb;
There we too shall join the chorus
In love’s everlasting key,
Saved by the blood of the Lamb. [Refrain]
