O mourner in Zion,
How blessèd art thou,
For Jesus is waiting
To comfort thee now;
Fear not to rely on
The word of thy God;
Step out on the promise—
Tet under the blood.

O ye that are hungry
And thirsty, rejoice!
For ye shall be filled;
Do you hear that sweet voice
Inviting you now
To the banquet of God;
Step out on the promise—
Get under the blood.

Who sighs for a heart
From iniquity free?
O, poor troubled soul!
There’s a promise for thee.
There’s rest, weary one,
In the bosom of God;
Step out on the promise—
Get under the blood.

Step out on this promise,
And Christ thou shalt win,
The blood of His Son
Cleanseth us from all sin
It cleanseth me now,
Hallelujah to God;
I rest on His promise—
I’m under the blood.
