1 The blood of Jesus cleanseth me;
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
That precious blood was shed for thee;
Hallelujah for the blood!

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah for the blood;
The blood of Jesus cleanseth me;
Hallelujah for the blood!

2 And with ten thousand, thousand tongues;
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
We'll join this everlasting song;
Hallelujah for the blood! [Chorus]

3 The theme demands an angel's tongue;
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Which shall be sung in endless song;
Hallelujah for the blood! [Chorus]

4 The grandest theme thro' ages rung;
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The grandest song the world e'er sung;
Hallelujah for the blood! [Chorus]
