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
