1 We shall reach our home some day,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
WE shall tread the golden way,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
We shall lay each burden down
And shall gain a glorious crown,
Hallelujah! gain a crown
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus.

Refrain:
Precious blood, crimson blood;
Oh, the precious blood of Jesus!
Hallelujah! we shall gain a crown
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus.

2 We shall sit upon the right,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
We shall wear the robes of white,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
Done with toiling cares and fears,
Done with partings, pains and tears,
While shall roll the endless years,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 We shall hear the angels sing,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
We shall gaze upon our King,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
We shall join the upper throng
In the sweet redemption song;
Chant it sweetly, loud and long,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 We shall dwell in safety there,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
Where the skies are ever fair,
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus;
We shall never sigh again,
We shall never die again;
Glory to His holy name!
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus. [Refrain]
