Representative Text

1 There’s a fountain of blood that atones for the soul,
And it flows from the side of the Lord;
Oh, the dear Lamb of God makes me perfectly whole,
For I stand on the rock of His word.

In the blood, in the blood,
Praise the Lord, I’m redeemed unto God;
Oh, this moment I know I am whiter than snow,
I am washed in the blood of the Lamb.

2 Oh, the virtue divine! oh, the soul-cleansing tide!
Here the vilest may wash and be clean;
And today is the time, lo, the Spirit and bride
Bid you come to the all-cleansing stream. [Refrain]

3 Oh, my heart overflows as I sing of the blood,
That has washed me so heavenly pure;
And the light ever glows in the temple of God,
All redeemed in the blood evermore. [Refrain]
