Original text and translations
1 From the Cross the blood is falling,
And to us a voice is calling,
Like a trumpet silver-clear;
'Tis the voice announcing pardon,
"It is finished," is its burden,
Pardon to the far and near.
2 Peace that precious blood is sealing,
All our wounds forever healing,
And removing every load;
Words of peace that voice has spoken,
Peace that shall no more be broken,
Peace between the soul and God.
3 God is love; we read the writing
Traced so deeply in the smiting
Of the glorious Surety there.
God is light; we see it beaming
Like a heavenly dayspring gleaming,
So divinely sweet and fair.
