There Is a Stream of Precious Blood
There is a stream of precious blood
Which flowed from Jesus' veins;
And sinners washed in that blest flood
Lose all their guilty stains.
The dying thief rejoiced to see
That Saviour in his day;
And by that blood, though vile as he,
My sins are washed away.
Blest Lamb of God, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its power,
Till every ransomed saint of God
Be saved to sin no more.
E'er since by faith I saw the stream
Thy wounds supplied for me,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall for ever be.
Soon in a nobler, sweeter song,
I'll sing Thy power to save;
No more with lisping, stammering tongue,
But conqueror o'er the grave.
Lord, I believe Thou hast prepared,
Unworthy though I be,
For me a blood-bought free reward,
A harp of God for me.
'Tis strung and tuned for endless years,
And formed by power divine,
To sound in God the Father's ears
No other name but Thine.
~By William Cowper (1731-1800) ~
A Short Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 26:28
For this is my blood of the new testament, which is
shed for many for the remission of sins.
Hebrews 9:23 tells us that "without shedding of blood is no
remission" for sin. The Lord Jesus, became the Passover Lamb
and shed His blood so that we could be forgiven-- an absolute
pardon provided by the precious blood of Christ! Forever we
shall give glory unto the Lamb-- for He is worthy of the Highest
praise! It was He who lived a sinless life; It was He who willingly
shed His precious blood in order to redeem us. Without the blood
of the Lamb, we cannot be saved. And the bible says that Christ
is our High Priest-- forever-- after the order of Melchisedec.
We have a living Savior-- the Man in Heaven-- Christ Jesus--
the Lord! He is our Risen Savior and He will quicken our mortal
bodies someday! Do you know Him as your personal Savior?
