Christ Shed His Blood For Me

Christ has shed His blood for me, Died my soul from sin to free

Representative Text

1 Christ has shed His blood for me,
Died my soul from sin to free;

Greater mercy never shown.

3 If from morn till set of sun
Thanks I give for what He's done,
I could never tell the whole,
Nor could fully e'er extol.
