Nothing but the Blood of Jesus

15 Jan

This is a song that is very much influencing me at the moment. Now you may think it’s that Matt Redman one that’s been kicking around the last few yars (which is very good) but it isn’t. It’s the absolute classic (and original) by the same name ritten by a Robert Lowry in the late 1800’s. Below are the words followed by a youtube video performed by Phil Whickman. I’ve also added an audio performance by a Mars Hill Band called E-Pop. Both different in tune, but it’s the lyrics tat blow me away. I wont comment on them, just leave theme here for you to read and no doubt be overjoyed with.

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 fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

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

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

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
