When God of old the way of life
Would teach to all His own,
He placed them safe be­yond the reach
Of death, by blood alone.


It is His Word, God’s pre­cious Word,
It stands for­ev­er true;
When I the Lord shall see the blood,
I will pass over you.

By Christ, the sin­less Lamb of God,
The pre­cious blood was shed,
When He ful­filled God’s ho­ly Word,
And suf­fered in our stead.


O soul, for thee sal­va­tion thus
By God is free­ly giv’n;
The blood of Christ atones for sin,
And makes us meet for Heav’n.


The wrath of God that was our due,
Upon the Lamb was laid;
And by the shed­ding of His blood,
The debt for us was paid.


How calm the Judg­ment hour shall pass
To all who do ob­ey
The Word of God, and trust the blood,
And make that Word their stay!
