The blood of Jesus Christ…cleanseth us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
If you know where to get a good photo of Tushingham (head & shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
I’m glad the flood, which flowed so free
On Calvary’s brow, for you and me,
Applied to hearts made foul by sin,
Removes the guilt, brings peace within.
O may the Savior’s precious blood,
The sacred, all atoning blood,
With cleansing power sweep o’er my soul,
To sanctify and make me whole.
I see God’s reconcilèd face,
Yet need a deeper work of grace,
The fullness which He can supply,
The cleansing blood to purify.
I want the Christian’s
The promised gift, the Holy Ghost,
To bring with sound like rushing wind,
Deliverance from the carnal mind.
To me this second blessing give,
That I the higher life may live;
This holiness, this perfect love,
For earth below or Heav’n above.
With faith in God, I lift a prayer,
My consecration now declare;
On Christ, the altar, lay my all,
And wait for fire from Heav’n to fall.
It comes with witness bright and clear,
To scatter doubts and banish fear;
Praise God, the Pentecostal shower
Breaks now with purity and power.
