Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. The blood has always precious been,
’Tis precious now to me;
Through it alone my soul has rest,
From fear and doubt set free.

Refrain
Oh, wondrous is the crimson tide
Which from my Savior flowed,
And still in Heav’n my song shall be,
The precious, precious, blood.

2. I will remember now no more,
God’s faithful Word has said,
The follies and the sins of him
For whom My Son has bled. [Refrain]

3. Not all my well-remembered sins
Can startle or dismay;
The precious blood atones for all
And bears my guilt away. [Refrain]

4. Perhaps this feeble frame of mine
Will soon in sickness lie,
But resting on the precious blood
How peacefully I’ll die. [Refrain]
