1 Who, who are these beside the chilly wave,
Just on the borders of the silent grave,
Shouting Jesus' power to save,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb

Chorus:
Sweeping through the gates to the New Jerusalem,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

2 These, these are they who in their youthful days
Found Jesus early and in wisdom's ways,
Proved the fulness of his grace,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
[Chorus]

3 These, these are they who in affliction's woes
Ever have found in Jesus calm repose,
Such as from a pure heart flows,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
[Chorus]

4 These, these are they who in the conflict dire
Bravely have stood amid the hottest fire;
Jesus now says, "Come up higher,"
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
[Chorus]
