1. When they crucified my Savior
On the cross of Calvary,
There a blessèd fount was opened
For my cleansing, full and free;
And my sins were all forgiven
Just by faith in His shed blood;
They are washed away forever
By the crimson flood.

Refrain
It cleanseth me! It cleanseth me!
The precious blood of Jesus
Fully cleanseth me.
It cleanseth me! It cleanseth me!
The precious blood of Jesus
Fully cleanseth me.

2. Now I plead the blood of Jesus,
And He’s with me all the way;
I am happy and rejoicing
In His favor every day;
In the burden and the trial,
There is none so kind as He;
My Redeemer is my kinsman,
And His blood saves me. [Refrain]

3. He will robe me with white raiment
When my pilgrimage is past;
And present me pure and spotless
With the sanctified at last;
I will sing His praise and glory
Unto all eternity,
Telling evermore the story
How His blood saved me. [Refrain]
