There is perfect cleansing in the precious blood
That flows for all so free;
There is full salvation in its crimson flood;
There’s a blessing from the Lord for me.

Refrain

There’s a blessing for me,
There’s a blessing for me,
A blessing from the Lord for me;
There is full salvation in the crimson flood;
There’s a blessing from the Lord for me.

I am saved each moment thro’ the cleansing blood
That now, by faith, I see;
I am sweetly resting at the cross I love;
There’s a blessing from the Lord for me.

Refrain

Oh, the blood, that keeps me from the power of sin,
My constant theme shall be;
I have laid my burden at the Savior’s feet;
There’s a blessing from the Lord for me.

Refrain

There is life eternal in the precious blood
That still is flowing free,
And my soul shall glory in the Savior’s cross;
There’s a blessing from the Lord for me.
