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
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
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
naught of good that i have done; 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

this is all my hope and peace: nothing but the blood of Jesus
this is all my righteousness: 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

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
oh, precious is the flow that makes me white as snow
no other fount i know; nothing but the blood of Jesus

bottom-line: salvation = Jesus + nothing
my security = Jesus + nothing
my hope and peace = Jesus + nothing
the basis of God's pleasure in me as His daughter = Jesus + nothing

if only we believed this enough to quit trying to earn what is already ours by nature of our union with Christ!
