I See A Stream All Crimson
I See A Stream all Crimson
I see a stream all crimson hued
Where souls of men are dipped;
Though you think not, I swear they
Come up white, as lilly lips.
Burdens tied upon their backs
Melt in the crimson tide;
Beauty glows within their hearts
Seen on the outer side!
A peace abides, as fear subsides,
Remains no taint of sin ~
The holy crimson blood dissolves
The deepest guilt of men!
Oh, Blood of strength to last for aye ~
Oh, Blood! Shed just for me!
The Power lasts from age to age
And sets the vilest free!
Oh, precious Blood! Which took His life
To cleanse and set us free;
Immerse me now, Oh, Crimson stream,
Cleanse me eternally!
