Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing pow'r

1
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing pow'r?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
  Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
  Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
2
Are you walking daily by the Savior's side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
3
When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white!
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for His presence bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?
4
Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb.

A different version:

We have been to Jesus for the cleansing pow’r.

We are washed in the blood of the Lamb.

We are fully trusting in His grace this hour.

We are washed in the blood of the Lamb!

We are washed in the blood,

In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb

Yes our garments are spotless. They are white as snow.

We are washed in the blood of the Lamb!

Stanza 4 reminds us to come to Jesus no matter how deep we've drowned in sin

Wow! I've just discovered that there's accompanied music to these lyrics so I can sing with music in my devotional exercises. These hymns take me back to years ago when my pleasure was to sing tirelessly from my mama's old hymn book.

As early as 3:a m when I woke up to ease myself

After going back to bed I keep meditating and only this song came to my mine

Have I gone to Jesus for the cleansing power?

Am I washed in the blood of the Lamb? May God bountifully bless the writer of this Hymn

As I was praying this morning, this hymn came to my mind. I have sang the 3rd stanza more than five times.

Lord please when you return I want my robes to be spotless and not stained.

Thank you Jesus

Question: Is it accurate to say that the blood cleanses our soul?

Answer: One of the hymns we sing refers to the "soul-cleansing blood." The redeeming blood cleanses us from any sin or defilement. It is probably better to avoid using this term in ordinary talk, though I would not say that it is wrong. The soul means the self. The blood does cleanse us from our sins, but we do not need to call it the "soul-cleansing" blood. In our writings we try to stay away from any questionable terminology. We don't condemn what others use, but we don't necessarily adopt their terms either.
