There is Power in the Blood

As I was preparing to lead worship last week, an old hymn, There is Power in the Blood, came alive to me so beautifully.  I’ve uploaded an arrangement I did of it here.  Below are the words.

Would you be free from the burden of sin
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood
Would you o’er evil a victory win
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood

Refrain:
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r in the blood of the Lamb
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r in the precious blood of the Lamb

Would you be free from your passion and pride
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood

Bridge (from Fee’s Beautiful the Blood)

How beautiful the blood flow, how merciful the love show

The King of glory poured out, victorious are we now

Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood
Sin-stains are lost in its life-giving flow
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood

I’m sure that those who are not followers of Jesus wonder what’s up with this fascination with blood.  Honestly, I can’t explain it.  It’s just something you have to experience being cleansed by to understand.  All I can say is that sin stained my life as black as night and Jesus’ blood washed it white as snow.  

How beautiful the blood.
