Representative Text

1 There is a place of perfect rest,
Under the blood, under the blood;
A hiding place, supremely blest,
Under the blood of Jesus.

Chorus:
O yes, there’s safety under the blood,
Under the blood, under the blood;
The Lord can save you under the blood,
Under the blood of the Lamb.

2 God saved His people long ago,
Under the blood, under the blood;
He’ll save and make you white as snow,
Under the blood of Jesus. [Chorus]

3 Come, bury here your sinful past,
Under the blood, under the blood;
Remorse can ne’er a shadow cast,
Under the blood of Jesus. [Chorus]

4 If you remain till life is past,
Under the blood, under the blood,
You’ll find the gate of Heav’n at last,
Under the blood of Jesus. [Chorus]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
