1 There is pow’r in Jesus’ blood to make me white as snow;
Mighty pow’r, his saving pow’r;
For the cleansing of my soul, to Calv’ry I will go;
In his blood there’s saving pow’r.

Refrain:
There is pow’r in Jesus’ blood to make me white as snow;
Yes, there’s pow’r, his saving pow’r;
Sing his great redeeming love, till all the world shall know,
In his blood, there’s saving pow’r.

2 There is pow’r in Christ the Lord to keep me day by day;
Mighty pow’r, his saving pow’r;
He will make me pure within, he’ll keep me by the way;
In his blood there’s saving pow’r. [Refrain]

3 There is pow’r in Christ the Lord to lead me safely home;
Mighty pow’r, his saving pow’r ;
He will gather all his own; they nevermore shall roam;
In his blood there’s saving pow’r. [Refrain]
