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.

Representative Text

1. Who, who are these beyond the chilly wave,
Just past the borders of the silent grave,
Shouting Jesus' pow'r to save?
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Chorus:
Sweeping thro' the gates to the New Jerusalem,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb;
Sweeping thro' the gates to the New Jerusalem,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

2. These, these are they who in their youthful days
Found Jesus early, and in wisdom's ways
Proved the fulness of his grace,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb. [Chorus]

3. These, these are they who in affliction's woes,
Ever have found in Jesus calm repose,
Peace which from a pure heart flows,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb. [Chorus]

4. These, these are they who in the conflict dire,
Boldly have stood amid the hottest fire;
Jesus now says, "Come up higher;"
Washed in the blood of the Lamb. [Chorus]

5. Safe, safe upon the everlasting shore,
Sin, pain, and death, and sorrow all are o'er;
Happy now and evermore,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb. [Chorus]
