What Must I Do Has Oft Been Asked


“What must I do?” has oft been asked,
Eternal life to gain;
Man anxious seems for any task,
If this he may obtain.

Refrain:
Oh, the blood of Jesus,
The precious blood of Jesus,
Oh, the blood of Jesus,
It cleanseth from all sin.

But all the doing has been done,
As God has clearly shown,
When by the off’ring of His Son,
His purpose He made known. [Refrain]

He laid on Him the sinner’s guilt,
When came th’appointed day,
And by that blood on Calv’ry spilt,
Took all our sins away. [Refrain]

Such was the sacrifice He made,
The law could ask no more;
For not a mite was left unpaid
When He my judgment bore. [Refrain]
