Representative Text

1 There is now a fountain opened,
Where the sinful one may go;
Plunging in its crimson waters
Be made whiter than the snow;
All their leprosy will leave them;
All their sorrow and their woe
Will be banished thro’ the blood of the Lamb.

We shall conquer by and by,
We shall reign with Him on high;
All our garments pure and white
Thro’ the blood, the blood of the Lamb.

2 Do you know how Jesus suffered
On the cruel, rugged tree?
How He bore the sins of many,
How He died for you and me?
Do not then reject this Saviour
Who has brought redemption free,
But be washed in the blood of the Lamb. [Refrain]

3 See the thorns His forehead piercing,
Hear the agonizing cry
Of the loving, patient Saviour
Who was given once to die;
On the cross He sealed our pardon,
Paid the debt and brought us nigh
To the Father thro’ the blood of the Lamb. [Refrain]

4 “Whosoever overcometh,”
Is the promise that is giv’n;
Shall be made a mighty pillar
In the glowing courts of heav’n;
Come and hide your soul in Jesus,
He’s the rock that has been riv’n;
And you’ll conquer thro’ the blood of the Lamb. [Refrain]

He worked in a woolen mill and as a shoe clerk. The last Methodist camp meeting in Bolton was in 1847. Tullar became a Methodist at age 19 at a camp meeting near Wat… Go to person page >
