#232: When I See the Blood

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Christ our Redeemer died on the cross,

Died for the sinner, paid all his due;

Sprinkle your soul with the blood of the Lamb,

And “I will pass, will pass over you.”

CHORUS

“When I see the blood, (“When I see the blood),

“When I see the blood, (“When I see the blood),

“When I see the blood, (“When I see the blood),

I will pass, I will pass over you.” (over you).”

2

Chiefest of sinners Jesus will save –

All He has promised, that He will do;

Wash in the fountain opened for sin,

And “I will pass, will pass over you.”

CHORUS

3

Judgment is coming, all will be there,

Each one receiving justly his due;

Hide in the saving, sin-cleansing blood,

And “I will pass, will pass over you.”

CHORUS

4

O great compassion!  O boundless love!

O loving kindness, faithful and true!

Find peace and shelter under the blood,

And “I will pass, will pass over you.”

CHORUS
