Lyrics

Did you ever hear such words before,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
As go in peace and sin no more,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

’Tis a glorious church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
’Tis a glorious church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Did you hear what Jesus said to me,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
Your sins are pardoned, you are free,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

I have plunged beneath the crimson tide,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
And now by faith I’m sanctified,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

O lift up your heads, ye sons of light,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
For Zion now is just in sight,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

If I get there before you do,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
How glad I’ll be to welcome you,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
