When I see the Blood (Christ our redeemer died on the cross)

This is a hymn about salvation.   It was originally written by John G. Foote, and then altered by American Evangelist preacher Elisha A. Hoffman (1839-1929). The text is inspired by Exodus 12:13.

With meter 9.9.9.9.10.11, it is almost always set to the tune which Foote wrote for it, which is sometimes called CHRIST OUR REDEEMER DIED ON THE CROSS.

Lyrics

Christ our Redeemer died on the cross,
Died for the sinner, paid all his due;
Sprinkle your soul with the blood of the Lamb,
And I will pass, will pass over you.

Refrain:
When I see the blood,
When I see the blood,
When I see the blood,
I will pass, I will pass over you.

Chiefest of sinners, Jesus will save;
As He has promised, that He will do;
Wash in the fountain opened for sin,
And I will pass, will pass over you.

Judgement is coming, all will be there,
Each one receiving justly his due;
Hide in the saving sin-cleansing blood,
And I will pass, will pass over you.

O great compassion! O boundless love!
O loving-kindness, faithful an!
Find peace and shelter under the blood,
And I will pass, will pass over you.
