'Tis a story oft repeated

Representative Text

1 ‘Tis a story oft repeated, but it never can grow old,
The story of the blood that makes us clean;
‘Tis the sweetest story ears have heard of lips have ever told,
The blood of Jesus cleanseth from all sin.

Able to save to the uttermost,
He offers us cleansing, and oh, it is free!
Wondrous salvation! it saves even me!
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

2 How it rings thro’ earth and heaven, sung by ransomed choirs above,
Who by its power o’ercame and were made clean;
How ‘tis echoed by the pure of earth, sav’d by redeeming love;
The blood of Jesus cleanseth from all sin. [Refrain]

3 As I listen to the message, how it thrills me with delight;
The fountain now is open, enter in;
Whosoever will may venture in and wash his garments white;
The blood of Jesus cleanseth from all sin. [Refrain]

4 Then why should I tarry longer? Jesus’ call I will obey;
I come, I wash, the promised rest I win,
I will trust his power to keep me clean each moment, ev’ry day;
The blood of Jesus cleanseth from all sin. [Refrain]
