Lyrics

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.
