The Blood That Jesus Once Shed For Me

    G                     C
The blood that Jesus once shed for me,
   G                     D    
As my Redeemer, upon the tree;
    G                      C
The blood that setteth the prisoner free,
     D              G
Will never lose its power.

Chorus:
        G        
It will never lose its power,
        C              G
It will never lose its power;
               D             G
The blood that cleanses from all sin
           D        G      C G
Will never lose its power.

It gives us access to God on high,
From “far off places” it brings us nigh;
To precious blessings that never die,
It will never lose its power.

Chorus

It is a shelter for rich and poor,
It is to Heaven the open door;
The sinner’s merit forevermore,
It will never lose its power.

Chorus

And when with all the blood washed throng
We sing in glory redemption’s song;
We’ll pass the glorious truth along,
It has never lost its power.

Chorus
