Nothing but the Blood of Jesus

More often than I care to admit I have questioned God about His lack of action (read: when I want Him to) on the myriad of crises I bring to Him during the past nine months. Why is it you need me on my knees begging for mercy or so it seems? I’ve never been one for tears and for a long time they seemed to have dried up. I don’t cry as much these days but when I do, it is to express my love for Jesus and all He has done for me.

God moves at my tears because it is the time when I have given up my will to fight for myself, when I have run out of the next great thing to do and can only trust that He has a solution I have not come with. I know I give God a run for His money, because I try my darndest to come up with the most daring or faithfilled way of resolving a problem. Of course I know that His ways are higher than mine and my efforts still pale in comparison to what He can do, but I try.

There really is no need to struggle when you can accept that Jesus paid it all on the cross. When you find yourself not wanting to surrender your agenda or your will to God for fear of seeming weak, remember that then is when you are strongest. I seek to get out of my own way today, so I can see the blood of Jesus at work in my life. This will be my anthem today, it takes nothing but the blood of Jesus to turn every situation around for the good and to the glory of our Lord.

Words & Music: Robert Lowry, in Gospel Music, by Will iam Doane and Robert Lowry (New York: Big low & Main, 1876).

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain
