Thou my ransom price hast paid,
Blessèd Son of God;
Since on Thee my heart is stayed,
Keep me under the blood.

Refrain

Keep me under the blood, dear Lord,
Calvary’s crimson flood;
Not mine own, but Thine alone,
Keep me under the blood.

At the cross where first I knelt,
Full of sinful pride,
Where I first salvation felt,
Let me still abide.

Refrain

Where to self and sin I died,
Where the nails were driv’n,
Let me still for cleansing hide
In Thy dear side riv’n.

Refrain

Shouting with my latest breath
Praises to our God,
Who my soul has saved and kept
By His precious blood.

Refrain
