Upon the cross our Savior died,
On Calvary’s brow was crucified;
See from His hands, His feet, His side,
His blood is dropping down.

Refrain

His blood is dropping, dropping down,
His blood is dropping, dropping down;
O sinner, get beneath the cross,
His blood is dropping down.

For you the thorns once pierced His brow,
He drank the cup, we know not how;
And for salvation even now,
His blood is dropping down.

Refrain

O sinner, come to Him today,
For He hath told you that you may;
He’ll wash your guilt and sin away,
His blood is dropping down.

Refrain

No longer then be tempest tossed:
In Jesus rest, He paid the cost;
An that your soul may not be lost,
His blood is dropping down.

Refrain
