Oh the sweet, sweet blood of Jesus
Cleansing and nourishing
to the body and soul
His sacrifice is our atonement
His suffering is our joy
for now He stands as king and LORD
above all the nations and angels and Universe
All of us call out His praise
For He is glorious and wonderful and good
His blood flows free through my veins
Lord Jesus, Maker of all things,
we are Your people. You are our God.
With a single Word, You created existance
With a breathe, You made us alive,
crafting us individually with Your mighty hand.
With the fingers that transcribed the Commandments
You write Your law upon our hearts,
a law of Grace and mercy and justice and righteousness and holiness and love.
You are indescribable, though I aspire to catch the faintest glimpse of You.
You befuddle me God, and that is good.
I long to spend eternity in Your arms.
Standing at the altar
Looking out at the congregation
I feel a tightness of the throat,
a pulsation of the heart.
Is it the Holy Spirit or just nerves?
Jesus transform me,
elevate me into your care
We’re all hypocrites, each in our own way
Are you willing to acknowledge your flaws?
The truth will make you a better person
