Representative Text

1 Tho’ oft I stray from my Lord away,
Forget life’s purpose and goal;
Tho’ sin allure, still my faith is sure,
The blood keeps cleansing my soul.

Refrain:
The blood keeps cleansing my soul!
The blood keeps cleansing my soul!
Tho’ sin may assail, it can never prevail,
The blood keeps cleansing my soul!

2 Tho’ bitter foes oft my way oppose,
And strive my life to control;
I falter not, nor bewail my lot,
The blood keeps cleansing my soul. [Refrain]

3 Then on I press, knowing God will bless,
His tides of love o’er me roll;
Come good or ill, I’m rejoicing still,
The blood keeps cleansing my soul. [Refrain]

4 Life’s day may pale, earthly strength may fail,
Death’s waves may over me roll;
My victor shout rings as I launch out,
“The blood keeps cleansing my soul.” [Refrain]
