HAS "THE POWER IN THE BLOOD" COVERED YOUR SINS?



“Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things…but with the precious blood of Christ” (1 Pet. 1:18-19)

“They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb”

(Revelation 7: 14)

The story behind the hymn:

This hymn was originally written in 1899. It was composed by Lewis Jones. Jones was a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Il. He worked at that time for the Young Man’s Christian Association (YMCA). He also wrote hymns part-time as a way of picking up some extra money. This song and its tune have endured for 100+ years. It exhorts the followers of Christ to be faithful during their trials, testings, and temptations. The power for their endurance is found in the “precious blood of the Lamb.” (Source: https://popularhymns.com/there-is-power-in-the-blood )

First Verse:

Would you be free from your burden of sin?

There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;

Would you o’er evil a victory win?

There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Refrain:

There is power, power, wonder-working power,

In the blood of the Lamb;

There is power, power, wonder-working power,

In the precious blood of the Lamb.

Second Verse:

Would you be free from your passion and pride? There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;

Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide, There’s wonderful power in the blood.


Third Verse:

Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow? There’s power in the blood, power in the blood; Sin-stains are lost in its life-giving flow, There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Fourth Verse:


Would you do service for Jesus your King? There’s power in the blood, power in the blood; Would you live daily His praises to sing? There’s wonderful power in the blood!
