Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

That makes me white as snow;

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my pardon this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Naught of works, ‘tis all of grace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
4.       This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness
