o, Sweet the Blood of Jesus

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 Heaven and Earth

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

into stone,

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.
