Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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]
