(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.

 (Refrain)

 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.

(Refrain)

4.      This is all my hope and peace – Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

This all my righteousness – Nothing but the blood of Jesus. 

(Refrain)

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,

Nothing But The Blood!

I love the call and response of this hymn. There have been different times that I have led congregations and men’s groups to sing this song. I’ve done it in a call and response style. I have the group be quiet while I sing the first part and then have them all sing out in unison the response. It is a very moving way to sing this song. This song is so meaningful to me that I want it sung at my funeral. Yes, my wife knows that.

But Friday’s are for prayer reminders. Let’s pray for churches to experience the power and presence of God this weekend. There are a lot of church activities going on and most churches will have more visitors this weekend than any other weekend. So let’s pray for:

  1. Unsaved visitors to attend true Bible believing Christian churches this Sunday
  2. Many unsaved people of all ages to get saved this Sunday
  3. Visitors to feel welcomed by the church people and return to those churches
  4. Pastor’s to preach the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit
  5. People to listen attentively this Sunday
  6. Churches to grow through evangelism/disciplemaking
  7. New churches to be started
  8. God to be glorified this Sunday in many different ways
  9. God’s people to live as ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ

Thank you for praying. Your prayers will make a difference. I hope you have a great weekend.

Grace and peace to you,

Romans 15:13

(19)For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, (20)and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross. (Colossians 1:19-20)
