THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

Nothing else is ever needed
But the blood of Christ
That salvation may be pleaded:
Nothing else.

Nothing less gives satisfaction
To God's rights or heart
In the face of sin's infraction;
Nothing less.

Nothing more has been demanded,
Nothing we can add;
In His love God has commanded
Nothing more.

  1. Thanks David. I know this song too. In Holland there's a dominee (priest?) who always is citating this this song in his sermon (in Dutch).

  2. Sorry, no. It is't te same one :-) I mean this:

    Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
    let me hide myself in thee;
    let the water and the blood,
    from thy wounded side which flowed,
    be of sin the double cure;
    save from wrath and make me pure

    But I love yours too.

  3. I'm reminded of the Hymn, "There's Power In The Blood." Of course, it also reminds me of the dual meaning of the Leviticus 17:11.

    "For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for yourselves; for it is the blood that makes atonement because of the life."
