BY THE BLOOD THAT FLOWED FROM THEE


1 By the Blood that flowed from Thee
In Thy bitter agony;
By the scourge so meekly borne;
By Thy purple robe of scorn,
(Refrain)
Jesus, Savior, hear our cry;
Thou went suff'ring once as we;
Hear the loving litany
We Thy children sing to Thee.
2 By the thorns that crowned Thy Head;
By Thy scepter of a reed;
By Thy footstep faint and slow,
Weighed beneath Thy cross of woe,

Jesus, Savior, hear our cry;
Thou went suff'ring once as we;
Hear the loving litany
We Thy children sing to Thee.
3 By the nails and pointed spear;
By Thy people's cruel jeer;
By Thy dying prayer which rose,
Begging mercy for Thy foes,

Jesus, Savior, hear our cry;
Thou went suff'ring once as we;
Hear the loving litany
We Thy children sing to Thee.
4 By the darkness black as night,
Blotting out the sun from sight;
By the cry with which in death,
Thou didst yield Thy parting breath,

Jesus, Savior, hear our cry;
Thou went suff'ring once as we;
Hear the loving litany
We Thy children sing to Thee.
