The Cross The Cross The Bloodstained Cro


The cross! that blood-stain’d cross!
The hallowed cross I see!
Reminding me of precious blood
That once was shed for me.

Refrain:
O the blood! the precious blood!
That Jesus shed for me,
Upon the cross in crimson flood,
Just now by faith I see.

A thousand fountains spring
Up from the throne of God;
But none to me such blessings bring
As Jesus’ precious blood. [Refrain]

That blood my ransom paid,
While I in bondage stood;
On Jesus all my sins were laid,
He saved me with His blood. [Refrain]

This theme will best employ
My harp before my God,
And make all heav’n resound with joy,
For Jesus’ cleansing blood. [Refrain]
