Representative Text

1 Precious, precious blood of Jesus,
Shed on Calvary;
Shed for rebels, shed for sinners,
Shed for thee and me!

O the precious blood of Jesus,
Shed on Calvary!
O believe it, O receive it,
‘Tis for thee and me!

2 Though thy sins are red like crimson,
Deep in scarlet glow,
Jesus’ precious blood shall wash thee
White as snow, as snow. [Refrain]

3 Precious blood that hath redeemed us!
All the price is paid;
Perfect pardon now is offered,
Peace is made, is made. [Refrain]

4 Precious blood, by this we conquer
In the fiercest fight;
Sin and Satan overcoming
By its might, its might. [Refrain]
