1Glory be to Jesus,
Who in bitter pains
Poured for me the lifeblood
From His sacred veins!
Grace and life eternal
In that Blood I find,
Blest be His compassion
Infinitely kind!
2Blest through endless ages
Be the precious stream
Which from sin and sorrow
Doth the world redeem!
Abel’s blood for vengeance
Pleaded to the skies;
But the Blood of Jesus
For our pardon cries.
3Oft as earth exulting
Wafts its praise on high,
Angel hosts, rejoicing,
Make their glad reply.
Lift ye then your voices;
Swell the mighty flood;
Louder still and louder,
Praise the precious Blood.
