Lyrics

The Savior died on Calvary;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb;
He gave His life for you and me;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

Salvation free for you and me
Saved through the blood of the Lamb;
His child forever I will be;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

The precious blood, how great the cost!
Saved through the blood of the Lamb;
Without it you’re forever lost;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

The precious blood, so freely giv’n;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb;
The promised way from earth to Heav’n;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

Then come tonight, and trust its power;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb;
You may be saved this very hour;
Saved through the blood of the Lamb.
