Elisha A. Hoffman, in Triumphant Songs No.5, by Edwin O. Excell (Chicago, Illlinois: 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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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

Refrain
