Tags: hymn, Nothing But the Blood, Robert Lowry
(18)For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, (19)but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. (1 Peter 1:18-19)
Nothing But the Blood
By Robert Lowry (1826-1899)
1. What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
(Refrain) Oh, precious is the flow That makes me white as snow;
No other font I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
2. For my pardon this I see – Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing, this my plea – Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
3. Nothing can for sin atone – Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done – Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
4. This is all my hope and peace – Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This all my righteousness – Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
This song is one of those old ones that are just nice to sing and to sing loud. It sounds good when it is done in a call and response way also. The song leader can sing the verse and the congregation can respond with the refrain. Regardless of how you sing it, you want to raise your voice and sing out to the LORD for what He has done.
Thank you Jesus, for taking my sin upon yourself and dying on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin. I am grateful for what You have done so that I might experience redemption. Thank you. I give this song to You and the Father as an offering of praise and thanksgiving.
Stay faithful and hopeful,
Bill (a fellow-laborer)
