Lord, keep my soul from day to day,
Under the blood, under the blood;
Take doubt and fear and sin away,
Under the precious blood.

Refrain

Under the blood, the precious blood,
Under the cleansing, healing flood;
Keep me, Savior, from day to day;
Under the precious blood.

The sinner’s refuge here alone,
Under the blood, under the blood;
Here Jesus makes salvation known,
Under the precious blood.

Refrain

Lord, with Thyself my spirit fill,
Under the blood, under the blood;
And work in me to do Thy will,
Under the precious blood.

Refrain

Sweet peace abides within the heart,
Under the blood, under the blood;
And gifts divine their joy impart,
Under the precious blood.

Refrain

The Holy Spirit, hour by hour,
Under the blood, under the blood,
Exerts His sanctifying power,
Under the precious blood.
