The Precious Blood

This is just a beautiful song that has been encouraging me immensely lately. Written by Peter Gagnon and performed by Sovereign Grace Music, it is a wonderful praise and worship song which speaks of the beloved blood which flowed from our Savior on the cross so that mankind might be justified in God’s sight. There is nothing more important for a person to know, than that Christ sacrificed His life and rose again so that they might experience true justification before God. Who are we that we should know such a priceless treasure? Yet Christ offers it to us with open hands. It is worth a life of devotion to glorifying His name.

The Precious Blood

Before the cross I kneel and see
The measure of my sin
How You became a curse for me
Though You were innocent
The magnitude of Your great love
Was shown in full degree
When righteous blood, the crimson spill
Rained down from Calvary

Oh, the precious blood
That flowed from Mercy’s side
Washed away my sin
When Christ my Savior died
Oh, the precious blood
Of Christ the crucified
It speaks for me before Your throne
Where I stand justified

And who am I that I should know
This treasure of such worth
My Savior’s pure atoning blood
Shed for the wrath I’d earned
For sin has stained my every deed
My every word and thought
What wondrous love that makes me one
Your priceless blood has bought

A crown of thorns, pierced hands and feet
A body bruised, and Mercy’s plea

1 Peter 1:18-19, “…knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.”
