When I See the Blood
Words by John Foote
Music by J.G. Foote

Exodus 12:13
"And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are:
and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not
be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt."

          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.

            Chorus
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            I will pass, I will pass over you.

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

            Chorus
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            I will pass, I will pass over you.

          Judgment 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.

            Chorus
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            I will pass, I will pass over you.

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

            Chorus
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            When I (when I) see the blood (see the blood),
            I will pass, I will pass over you.
