Thrust Open by a Spear

From the One they Sacrificed,
Thrust open by a spear,
Came the precious blood of Christ
And with it, did water appear

O let the precious blood
From His side, fill my vein,
And the flowing water, flood,
And wash away my stain:

From Eden's origin,
From what our Father Adam lost,
Came the stain of sin,
And need to redeem, at such a cost.
