Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Saved by the blood of the Crucified One,
Jesus is mine;
Cleansed in the blood of God’s infinite Son,
And in His own beauty to shine;
Precious the fountain from Calvary’s hill,
There will I bath my soul;
Resting in Jesus, His word to fulfill,
Safe, tho’ tempests roll.

Glory to Jesus, I’m saved by the blood of the Lamb;
Gladly I praise Him whose blood cleanses me from all sin;
Glory to Jesus, who suffered on Calvary’s tree;
Saved by His blood, I will sing to His name thro’ eternity.

2 Looking to Him, lifted up from my sin,
Jesus is mine;
Trusting the pow’r that has cleansed me within,
I’m kept by His mercy Divine;
Trusting in Jesus for pardon and peace,
He will my refuge be;
From all my bondage will give me release,
Guide and comfort me. [Refrain]

3 Singing His praises, I’ll press on my way,
Jesus is mine;
Kept in the fountain,
I’m cleansed day by day,
For He all His gold will refine;
Glory and honor to Him that was slain,
Bearing my guilt and woe;
Wonderful blood that will make ev’ry stain
Whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
