The Precious Blood of Jesus

I praise the wounds of the Lamb
that heal the weakness of my body,
I praise the wounds of the Lamb
that heal the weakness of my soul,
I praise the wounds of the Lamb
that heal the weakness of my spirit!

Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his forgiving power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his cleansing power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his saving power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his releasing power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his victorious power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his renewing power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in his protecting power.
For whoever believes
in the power of the blood of Jesus,
nothing is impossible.

I praise the blood of the Lamb
that covers all my sins
so that they can no longer be seen,
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that cleanses me from all my sins
and makes me white as snow,
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that has power to free me
from all my bondages and chains of sin.
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that is stronger
than my own sin-infested blood
and remoulds me into the image of God,
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that is victorious over all powers
that seek to oppress me,
over every power of the enemy.
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that protects me
from all the devious attacks of the enemy.
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that prepares for me the bridal garment.
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that makes all things new.
Alleluia! Amen.
