Representative Text

1 The word of the Lord can never fail,
This wonderful truth I see,
The blood o’er the door saved Israel
The blood on the cross saves me.

Refrain:
I’ll sing it, yes, and I’ll shout it!
The blood, the blood,
There’s never a soul saved without it
This blood of Calvary.

2 When sin like a storm my pathway dims,
A light thro’ the clouds I see;
The blood on the cross for sin atones
The blood on the cross saves me. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ doubt may assail and faith grow dim
And troubled my soul may be,
I’ll lift up a pray’r and shout aloud
The blood on the cross saves me. [Refrain]

4 And when I am called to pass away,
And fearful it seems to me,
I’ll shout as I pass the valley thro’
The blood on the cross saves me. [Refrain]
