Nothing but the Blood, the Song and the Story

Composer Robert Lowry Writes Nothing but the Blood



The Blood and the Body
The blood of Jesus to the Christian these words are some of the most beautiful ever spoken or penned. To others, the idea that all mankind needs a Savior is foolish thought. “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” (Corinthians 1:18).

The timeless words of the song Nothing But the Blood were written by Robert Lowry in 1876. More than 130 years later, contemporary Christians still sing the hymn with conviction, resounding the eternal truth that “without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.” (Hebrews 9:22)

The blood of Jesus is salvation, healing, and eternal life. “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

Nothing But the Blood

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
