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


Complete in Him, I dare to say,
The blood has washed all sin away;
I’ll praise Him while on earth I stay,
And shout thro’ Heav’n’s eternal day.


The precious blood of Jesus
Has cleansed my heart from sin.
The precious blood of Jesus
Has made me pure within.

If there’s a heart that is impure,
Apply the blood without delay,
And you will find the promise sure,
The blood of Christ will cleanse today.


The promise is to you and yours,
And all that now are far away
Will find the blood that always cures,
If you Jehovah’s call obey.


Whoever will may come, though dead,
The Spirit and the Bride hath said,
Let him that heareth, tell it ’round,
Abundant life in Christ is found.
