Lyrics

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.
