Das Blut Jesu Christi, des Sohnes Gottes,
machet uns rein von allen Sünden.
1. Joh. 1,7

Dein Blut, der edle Saft,
Hat solche Stärk und Kraft,
Daß auch ein Tröpflein kleine
Die ganze Welt kann reine,
Ja, gar aus Teufels Rachen
Frei, los und ledig machen.

English.png English translation

the blood of Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin

Your blood, the precious juice
has such power and force
that even a small drop
can cleanse the whole world
yes, even free us, release us and make us unbound from the devil's throat.
