O the Blood

O the Blood
Crimson love
Price of life's demand

Shameful sin placed on Him,
The hope of every man

O the blood of Jesus washes me
O the blood of Jesus shed for me
What a sacrifice that saved my life
Yes, the blood, it is my victory!

Savior, Son, Holy One
Slain so I can live.
See the Lamb
The great I AM
Who takes away my sin!

O the blood of Jesus washes me
O the blood of Jesus shed for me
What a sacrifice that saved my life
Yes, the blood, it is my victory!

O the blood of the Lamb
The precious blood of the Lamb

What a sacrifice that saved my life
Yes, the Blood, it is my victory

O what love
No greater love
Grace,how can can it be
That in my sin,
Yes, even then,
He takes away my sin!

O the blood of Jesus washes me
O the blood of Jesus shed for me
What a sacrifice that saved my life
Yes, the blood, it is my victory!


What can I even write about this song? This song that is so powerful that it brings me to tears just to think about the words it contains?

I always get caught up in the first verse, "price of life's demand", because, let's face it, I'm not anywhere close to living a life that does not desperately need a savior. No one is. I think the way it is stated, "life's demand", creates a very nice perspective. It doesn't say, "the demand of my personal beliefs". It says that Life demands this price. That no matter how you look at it we are imperfect and the only way we can be saved is by the blood of Jesus. The Lamb of God.
That is the price.
And it has already been paid. That's not "chicken feed", mind you. That is the most incredible sacrifice the world has ever known, and we don't even have to be anywhere near deserving of it to receive it!

That blows my mind and I pray it always does.

We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.
-Romans 3:22

Washed by the Blood
