The Cleansing Wave Lyrics
Oh, now I see the crimson wave!
The fountain deep and wide;
Jesus, my Lord, mighty to save,
Points to His wounded side.
The cleansing stream I see, I see!
I plunge, and, oh, it cleanseth me!
Oh, praise the Lord, it cleanseth me!
It cleanseth me, yes, cleanseth me.
I see the new creation rise,
I hear the speaking blood;
It speaks, polluted nature dies,
Sinks ’neath the cleansing flood.
I rise to walk in Heav’n’s own light,
Above the world and sin,
With heart made pure and garments white,
And Christ enthroned within.
Amazing grace! ’tis Heav’n below
To feel the blood applied,
And Jesus, only Jesus know,
My Jesus crucified.
The Cleansing Wave Hymn Story
“The Cleansing Wave” is a Christian hymn that was composed by Phoebe Palmer. The tune is called “Oh, now I see the crimson wave”.
The blood is central to salvation in both Judaism and Christianity. We have all sinned and deserve to die for the just punishment for sin is death.
In the Old Testament it was the blood of sheep and other animals that paid for the sins of the people.
If someone sinned, he to take a lamb or other clean animals to the temple where it was killed to atone for his sins.
However, these were just a symbol of what Christ did on the cross of the world.
The blood of sheep and other animals only pointed to the real sacrifice who is Christ. It is through his sacrifice that our salvation is assured.
