NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS
(Tune: Come, Thou Fount #17 87.87 D)
Often as my sins assail me
I look to my Savior's blood.
Nothing but the blood can cleanse me,
Give me peace, and do me good.
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
And His perfect righteousness,
Can with God give us acceptance
And assure our hearts of grace.
Break, my heart, in deep contrition,
(Source of every sin and vice!)
Yet for sin there's no remission,
But the blood of Jesus Christ.
I would ever serve my Savior,
Ever do His blessed will;
But my noblest, best endeavor
Needs to be forgiven still!
Savior, keep me ever clinging
To Your blood and righteousness,
Til, at last, in heaven singing
I shall magnify Your grace.
