Words & Mu­sic: Eli­sha A. Hoff­man, in Tri­um­phant Songs No. 5, by Ed­win O. Ex­cell (Chi­ca­go, Ill­i­nois: E. O. Ex­cell, 1896), num­ber 41 (🔊 pdf nwc).


I have perfect peace today,
All my sins are washed away;
Hiding ’neath the crimson blood,
I am reconciled to God.


Under the blood, under the blood,
Pardon and cleansing
I found under the blood;
Under the blood, under the blood,
There I forever
Will hide, under the blood.

What a work the Lord has done!
What a work of grace begun!
All my sins are covered o’er;
He remembers them no more.


Wondrous is God’s grace to me,
Making me forever free,
Sanctifying me to God,
Thro’ the all prevailing blood.


So in gladness I go on,
Till the Master’s work is done,
Trusting in atoning blood,
Walking in the love of God.
