Albert S. Reitz (1879–1966)


There’s a crim­son tide from the Sav­ior’s side,
And it purg­eth all who plunge therein;
O its heal­ing stream doth the soul re­deem,
And it cleans­eth from all sin.


Hallelujah! Hal­le­lu­jah!
It cleansed my heart and made me free;
Hallelujah! Hal­lelujah!
His blood availed for me.

There’s a bound­less sea flow­ing full and free,
From the cross where Je­sus bled and died;
O its pre­cious flow wash­es white as snow,
And its mer­cies e’er abide.


From the con­trite heart He doth ne’er de­part,
But He of­fers par­don o’er and o’er;
He the sins doth roll from the bur­dened soul,
And re­mem­bers them no more.
