Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 When the Savior came to dwell below
On the cross His wondrous love to show,
Twas that all this blessed truth might know
There is cleansing in the blood,

Chorus:
There is cleansing in the blood, in the blood,
There is cleansing in the blood, in the blood;
All who in the Lord believe,
shall have life, and joy, and peace,
There is cleansing in the blood.

2 You have doubtless heard it oft before
Yet the Spirit comes to thee once more,
And repeats the story o’er and o’er
There is cleansing in the blood, [Chorus]

3 'Twas for you the Lord was crucified,
See His bleeding hands, His feet, his side,
'Twas for you He suffered thus and died,
There is cleansing in the blood, [Chorus]

4 Hear and heed the Spirit’s pleading voice,
Come! oh come, and make the Lord your choice,
And this truth will make you to rejoice
There is cleansing in the blood, [Chorus]

5 Savior dear, to Thee my heart I bring,
Now accept my humble offering,
That with all thy saved ones I may sing
There is cleansing in the blood, [Chorus]
