Protected By The blood
By Tom D Blakely
Our Lord came down from heaven above
And in a manger He was born
He left the glory that was His
To be the lowly Son of man.
Our Lord from youth explained God’s word
He showed the only way to God
And how for sin mankind was lost
Unless protected by His blood.
The wicked soon despised His truth
Rejecting Jesus and God’s way
They crucified Him due to hate
And watched the Saviour bleed and die.
But Jesus died as God for man
That guilty may have sin forgiven,
God’s Spirit leads us to repent
And faith in Christ removes our sin.
The time is short and judgement’s near
When sin will reap its due reward
But there is everlasting life
For those protected by the blood.
God said: ‘when I see the blood, I will pass over you’
‘The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said,
“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!’
