Precious, precious blood of Jesus,
Shed on Calvary,
Shed for rebels, shed for sinners,
Shed for me.

Precious blood, that hath redeemed us!
All the price is paid;
Perfect pardon now is offered,
Peace is made.

Precious, precious blood of Jesus,
Let it make thee whole;
Let it flow in mighty cleansing
O’er thy soul.

Though thy sins are red like crimson,
Deep in scarlet glow,
Jesus’ precious blood can make them
White as snow.

Precious, precious blood of Jesus,
Ever flowing free!
O believe it, O receive it,
’Tis for thee.
