The blood of Jesus Christ so precious
Was lavishly shed on Calvary's cross
To redeem the souls of sinful men
That they may become God's children.
Precious,pure and priceless blood
Shed to redeem men back to God
All hail the Man of Calvary
Who brought salvation full and free.
Sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate
Pummeled by the impudent and profligate
Whipped by merciless roman soldiers
Stripped and given a crown of thorns to wear.
Betrayed,denied and then crucified
On the cross,bled sorely and died.
Suffering such agony and shame
That we may have victory in His name.
His blood brought freedom and forgiveness
Granting believers grace and righteousness
Now men can be cleansed and reconciled to God
By the wonder-working power in His blood.
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
