Representative Text

1 There is power in Jesus’ blood to keep,
And to cleanse my heart from ev’ry stain;
For me the perfect Lamb of God
On the cross of Calvary was slain.

Refrain:
Jesus’ blood will keep my garments white,
Pure and white, pure and white,
Jesus’ blood will keep my garments white,
Pure and white and unspotted from the world.

2 ‘Mid the daily duties of my life,
I have Jesus with me, all the way;
His grace so freely given me,
Is abiding in my soul today. [Refrain]

3 And I know that ‘round the throne of God,
Where the white-robed angels sweetly sing;
With garments washed in Jesus’ blood,
There’s a place for me beside my King. [Refrain]
