Saved Through the Blood of Jesus

Saved through the blood of Jesus (Champney)

Author: H. D'Arcy Champney
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Saved thro’ the blood of Jesus,
Saved from all guilt and shame,
Saved is the soul that trusts Him,
Trusts in His precious name.
Safe in the Rock of Ages
Fearlessly he may hide,
Safe from the storms of judgment,
Safe from the swelling tide.

Saved thro’ the blood of Jesus,
Perfect and only plea;
Naught else avails for sinners,
Naught else avails for me.

2 Saved thro’ the blood of Jesus,
Saved from the wrath to come,
Saved, too, to dwell forever
Safe in the Father’s home.
Joy is among the angles,
Joy in the heart of God,
When an unworthy sinner
Trusts in the precious blood. [Chorus]

3 Saved thro’ the blood of Jesus,
Saved from eternal doom,
Saved, too, to share Christ’s glory,
Saved until He shall come;
Save from o’erwhelming sorrow,
Saved from distracting care,
Saved from a world of evil,
Saved from all doubt and fear. [Chorus]

4 Saved for the day of glory,
Then the redeemed will sin;
Still of the blood of Jesus
Loudly their praise will ring;
Saved now to wait with patience,
Looking by faith afar,
Till just before the dawning
Rises the Morning Star. [Chorus]
