List, the Spirit calls for thee,
Will you be washed in the blood?
Jesus died to make you free,
Will you be washed in the blood?
Pardon will be given,
Cleansing you for Heaven.

Refrain

Will you be washed?
Washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will you be washed?
Washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Sinner, now this blessing claim,
Will you be washed in the blood?
Thro’ the dear Redeemer’s name,
Will you be washed in the blood?
Claim Him as your Savior,
He can save forever.

Refrain

Christ can wash you white as snow,
Will you be washed in the blood?
And the witness you may know,
Will you be washed in the blood?
You can know this hour,
Of His saving power.

Refrain

Jesus drank the cup for all,
Will you be washed in the blood?
Don’t reject the Spirit’s call,
Will you be washed in the blood?
Grace is now abounding,
Joy thro’ Heav’n resounding.

Refrain
