Oh, the crim­son wave, hal­le­lujah!
Now is flow­ing full and free;
Brother, come, while yet there’s par­don,
And the Sav­ior pleads with thee.


Oh, the crim­son wave now is flow­ing,
Blessèd crim­son wave, life be­stow­ing;
Hear the voice that pleads with thy heart to­day,
Come and wash thy sins away.

Oh, the crim­son wave, hal­le­luj­ah!
Now is flow­ing deep and wide,
From the cleans­ing fount­ain opened,
At the cross where Je­sus died.


Oh, the crim­son wave, hal­le­lu­jah!
It will give thee joy with­in;
’Tis the blood of Christ re­deemed thee,
And will cleanse from ev­ery sin.


Oh, the crim­son wave, hal­le­lu­jah!
If its full­ness fill thy soul,
Thou wilt sing His love that saves thee,
While eter­nal ag­es roll.
