Jesus, my King – how can it be so
that You Who created the wonders I know
would live as a man and yet suffer no loss –
then pour out Your Life on the sin-stained Cross!
Life-giving Blood poured on the earth
Eternal Blood with eternal worth!
Calling the dust to eternal birth –
Life-giving Blood, Life-giving Blood of God!
Sweet holy Lamb – how worthy You are
of all adoration, how worthy You are!
You’ve purchased our souls with a marvelous price,
and You’ve given us life, who were once dead, twice!
O, Life-giving Blood, I always will praise
the virtue within You that cleanses my ways
from evil destruction that call me to hell
to Jesus within me – Emmanuel!
