Representative Text

1 Who, who are these beside the chilly wave,
Just on the borders of the silent grave,
Shouting Jesus’ power to save,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrain:
Sweeping through the gates of 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.

3 These, these are they who in affliction’s woes
Ever have found in Jesus calm repose,
Such as from a pure heart flows,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

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.
