    Verse 1
    Glory be to Jesus,
    Who, in bitter pains,
    Pour'd for me the Life-blood
    From His sacred veins

    Verse 2
    Grace and life eternal
    In that Blood I find;
    Blest be His compassion
    Infinitely kind

    Verse 3
    Blest through endless ages
    Be the precious stream,
    Which from endless torments
    Did the world redeem

    Verse 4
    Abel's blood for vengeance
    Pleaded to the skies;
    But the Blood of JESUS
    For our pardon cries

    Verse 5
    Oft as it is sprinkled
    On our guilty hearts,
    Satan in confusion
    Terror struck hearts

    Verse 6
    Oft as earth exulting
    Wafts its praise on high,
    Angels-hosts rejoicing
    Make their glad reply

    Verse 7
    Lift ye then your voices;
    Swell the mighty flood;
    Louder still and louder
    Praise the precious Blood
