Because of the Blood

On most days while hanging out around the house I usually have some form of music playing whether it be online radio, television, cd's, etc... But today I decided to play a dvd by The Collingsworth Family. If you've never had the chance to hear or see this wonderful new family group I STRONGLY urge you to check their tour schedule and go see them sometime. I really, really like this group for a couple of reasons: 1. They're a family group. I love family groups. And to me they just seem to be what I guess I might have always dreamed my family would be like; close, musical, and all serving the Lord together. 2. They give a wonderful presentation of the Gospel in their concerts. And its done in a way that I guess I just really enjoy.

As the concert was playing I was just doing different things around the house. I was listening and enjoying the program, but it wasn't until the last song of the program that my attention was pulled right into this one song. And since then I've played this song over and over and over and over and over and over...well you get the idea. So I copied down the lyrics to share with you. Read that last chorus over and over and over till you get the full effect. If those lines don't light your fire, and don't get you excited then maybe you need to do some checking up!!

Because of the Blood

The thief on the cross deserved his sentence,
dying for the crimes he had done.
Desperate and hopeless with only a prayer left
he turned and asked for mercy from God's Son.
As the veil was being torn, thunder shook the earth
and the power of the blood reached out to him.
As Jesus paid the sacrifice He made a promise
Today you'll be with me in paradise!

Because of the blood he was free that day
Death's chains lost their hold on him
His sin's washed away
He met one who forgave him
and changed his destiny.
His sin's were forgiven, forgotten, forever
Because of the blood

And like the thief on the cross
my soul was covered with the stains of my sin
that brought me shame
Desperate and dying I looked to the cross
And called upon Jesus' name
I don't understand it, I can't explain it
But one thing I know for sure
My sins are washed away, O' Happy day!
That's why we stand here and say

Because of the blood I am free today!
Sin's chains have no hold on me!
My ransom is paid!
Jesus forgave me!
And He changed my destiny!
My sins are forgiven, forgotten, forever!!
Because of the blood!!

Jesus forgave me!
And He changed my destiny!
My sins are forgiven, forgotten, forever!
Because of the blood!
Because of the blood!
Because of the blood!
