Only the Blood of Jesus

What is it that reaches the depths of my heart
What is it that brings in a grace that imparts
What is it that makes us from sin to depart
Only the blood. Only the blood

What is it that cleanses my heart from all sin
What is it that places His peace deep within
What is it that helps us our battles to win
Only the blood of Jesus

Only the blood will bring us to God
Only the blood will birth in us awe
Of the wonderful price that He paid that day
When He washed our sins away

What is it that reached down from heaven that day
When a virgin born baby lay sleeping in hay
Shepherds and wise men came ‘round to pray
Only the blood. Only the blood

Only the blood came to earth that day
Inside the flesh of the babe in the hay
Had He not said that He’d come this way
Our sins would not be washed away

On this Christmas day remember the blood
Remember the price He paid was enough
To pardon your sin and build a new heart
Only the blood of Jesus
