What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again?
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

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

The whole earth trembled as He died
The blood of the Lamb was shed for me
God's only Son has set me free!

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

God's only Son has set me free!

No other fount I know,

The story behind the song

I've always cherished the hymn "Nothing But The Blood".  I sat at a piano one day on a dimly lit stage and had a time of worship with just me and God.  I began playing the old hymn and sang it to God.  As I finished the traditional part of the song - the words of the new chorus just formed and came out.  The only image I could picture was my Lord, bearing the weight of my sin, and me...being moved to tears.  I couldn't bear it.  Then, in a moment - I could see intensly, my Savior saying "It Is FINISHED!"...the sky growing dark...and my debt paid.  The words penetrated that dark room and made me burst into tears.  Thankfully, I was able to recall them quickly enough after singing them to write them down.
