If you know where to get a good pho­to of Rouse or Boole (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Precious Savior, Thou hast saved me;
Thine, and only Thine I am;
Oh! the cleansing blood has reached me,
Glory, glory to the Lamb!


Glory, glory, Jesus saves me,
Glory, glory to the Lamb!
Oh! the cleansing blood has reached me,
Glory, glory to the Lamb!

Long my yearning heart was trying
To enjoy this perfect rest;
But I gave all trying over;
Simply trusting, I was blest.


Trusting, trusting, every moment,
Feeling now the blood applied;
Lying at the cleansing fountain,
Dwelling in my Savior’s side.


Consecrated to Thy service,
I will live and die to Thee;
I will witness to Thy glory,
Of salvation full and free.


Yes, I will stand up for Jesus;
He has sweetly saved my soul,
Cleansed me from inbred corruption,
Sanctified, and made me whole.


Glory! to the blood that bought me!
Glory to its cleansing power!
Glory to the blood that keeps me!
Glory, glory, evermore!
