1. Lord, keep my soul from day to day,
Under the blood, under the blood;
Take doubt and fear and sin away,
Under the precious blood.

Refrain
Under the blood, the precious blood,
Under the cleansing, healing flood;
Keep me, Savior, from day to day;
Under the precious blood.

2. The sinner’s refuge here alone,
Under the blood, under the blood;
Here Jesus makes salvation known,
Under the precious blood. [Refrain]

3. Lord, with Thyself my spirit fill,
Under the blood, under the blood;
And work in me to do Thy will,
Under the precious blood. [Refrain]

4. Sweet peace abides within the heart,
Under the blood, under the blood;
And gifts divine their joy impart,
Under the precious blood. [Refrain]

5. The Holy Spirit, hour by hour,
Under the blood, under the blood,
Exerts His sanctifying power,
Under the precious blood. [Refrain]
