Tr. Rev. E. Caswall

Allegro modto

Glory be to Jesus,
Who in bitter pains
Poured for me the life-blood
From His Sacred Veins.
Grace and life eternal
In that Blood I find;
Blest be His compassion,
Infinitely kind!

Blest thro' endless ages
Be the precious stream,
Which from endless torment
Doth the world redeem!
There the fainting spirit
Drinks of life her fill;
There, as in a fountain,
Laves herself at will.

Abel's Blood for vengeance
Pleading to the skies;
But the Blood of Jesus
For our pardon cries.
Oft as it is sprinkled
On our guilty hearts,
Satan in confusion
Terror-struck departs.

Oft as earth exulting
Wafts its praise on high,
Hell with terror trembles,
Heav'n is filled with joy.
Lift ye, then, your voices,
Swell the mighty flood;
Louder still, and louder
Praise the Precious Blood.
