Jesus, Sav­ior, now is call­ing,
Turn, O turn from sin away;
He will all your bur­dens car­ry,
Turn your dark­ness into day.


The pre­cious blood, it cleans­eth me;
The pre­cious blood now cleans­eth me;
Pure, ex­haust­less, ev­er flow­ing,
Precious blood, it cleans­eth me.

Jesus, Sav­ior, now is wait­ing,
To for­give your ev­ery sin;
Haste, O hast­en to the foun­tain;
Now He bids you en­ter in.


Jesus, Sav­ior, has com­mand­ed,
Be ye wholly sanc­ti­fied;
On the day of His re­turn­ing,
He will wel­come home His bride.


Jesus, Sav­ior, has as­cend­ed
To the Fa­ther’s realms so fair,
For His peo­ple pure and ho­ly,
Heav’nly man­sions to pre­pare.


Jesus, Sav­ior, how I love Thee,
For the grace Thou dost be­stow;
Now Thy precious blood is cleansing
Whiter than the driven snow.
