“Nothing but the Blood” by Robert Lowry (late 1800s)
What can wash away my sin? 
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
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

Oh, Precious is the flow that makes me white as snow
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus

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

Oh, Precious is the flow that makes me white as snow
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus

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

Oh, Precious is the flow that makes me white as snow
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus
That’s it, friends.  Just Jesus.  Nothing else can make us whole again, nothing that we can do can cleanse us of our sins.  Only Jesus.  This weekend we remember and celebrate His work on the cross and His defeat of death.  It is a morbid holiday weekend, all about dying and being raised from the dead, blood and sin.  We can try to gloss over it all we want with Cadbury eggs and fluffy bunnies, but we can’t get away from the truth.  Jesus took on our sin so that we could have real life in relationship with God.  Pure and simple, we are free because of His suffering.  What separates Christianity from every other faith on earth, is that there is nothing we can do to be good enough for God.  He has done all the work for us, and gives it to us in this free gift called grace.  Every other faith is about man trying to reach God.  God reaches out to us, and I am blown away every time I think about it.  Thank you Jesus for your work on the cross.  I do not deserve your love, but I am so grateful for it.

Easter is by far my favorite holiday- I can’t imagine how my everyday life would be so drastically different without the hope we have as a result of Jesus suffering for us to saving us. How beautiful God’s grace is- overwhelming!! Thank you for sharing- I’ll be looking at your blog more often 🙂
