My happy soul rejoices,
The sky is bright above;
I’ll join the heav’nly voices,
And sing redeeming love.

Refrain

For there’s power in Jesus’ blood,
Power in Jesus’ blood;
There’s power in Jesus’ blood
To wash me white as snow.

I heard the blessèd story
Of Him who died to save;
The love of Christ swept o’er me,
My all to Him I gave.

Refrain

His gracious words of pardon
Were music to my heart;
He took away my burden,
And bade my fears depart.

Refrain

I plunge beneath this fountain,
That cleanseth white as snow;
It pours from Calvary’s mountain,
With blessing in its flow.

Refrain

Oh, crown Him King forever!
My Savior and my friend;
By Zion’s crystal river
His praise shall never end.

Refrain
