The Weekly Hymn

I trust you are all enjoying this weekly feature. I promise there will be other things as well soon….

The hymn “Nothing but the blood of Jesus” takes us to the very heart of the gospel. It is only because Jesus died and shed his blood that we can be forgiven. “The blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin” (1 John 1: 7).

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

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.

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

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.
