Power in the Blood

It’s a fact that there is so much hurt, bad, and sadness right around us. Everywhere we turn, known and unknown evils reign. There’s human trafficking: Woman and children and men are treated by another human being like an animal. No, worse than animals. I don’t know them, but I frequently pray that that those innocent slaves are rescued from their pain. Broken families abound: Oh, the manipulation, the threats, the schemes, the heartache, the tears, the lies, the slander, the broken friendships, the poor children. Crimes of society: Regularly aired by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. Our vindictive hearts: Full of hatred, self-absorbed love, and alienation from our Creator. It’s a sad situation. We so need help! The cycle must end.

“To every Christian comes the word that was addressed to Peter, ‘Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not’ (Luke 22:31, 32). Thank God we are not left alone. This is our safety. Satan can never touch with eternal disaster one whom Christ has prepared for temptation by His previous intercession, for grace is provided in Christ for every soul, and a way of escape has been made, so that no one need fall under the power of the enemy.” That I May Know Him, 286

Power in the Blood

1. Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

* Refrain:
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the precious blood of the Lamb.

2. Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide;
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

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

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

By Lewis E. Jones, 1899
