Past Is All under the Blood, The, #96

Lyrics

Verse 1
A present and perfect salvation I have
In Jesus my Saviour,
For he is abundantly able to save
Both now and forever.

Chorus
He saves me just now, hallelujah!
The past is all under the blood,
And Calvary’s flow makes me whiter than snow,
The past is all under the blood.

Verse 2
The blood of the Lamb cleanseth now from all sin,
Than snow makes me whiter;
The Comforter promised abideth within,
My path growing brighter.

Verse 3
The burden of guilt which so long I had borne,
In weight like a mountain;
The sins which had caus’s me so often to mourn,
All lost in the fountain.

Verse 4
He leads me so gently the way I should go,
My wonderful Keeper;
And gives sweetest comfort the world cannot know,
My peace growing deeper.

Verse 5
I’m lostand encompassed with wonderful Love,
Tho’ nothing I merit;
A beautiful mansion preparing above,
I soon shall inherit.
