“Thy Blood Alone”
Words by Isaac Watts, alt. Stephen McNeill
Music by Stephen McNeill, Blake Bostick, and Summer Holbrook
Lord, I am vile, conceived in sin,
And born unholy and unclean;
Sprung from the man whose guilty fall
Corrupts the race and taints us all.
Soon as we draw our Infant breath,
The seeds of sin grow up for death:
Thy law demands a perfect heart,
But we're defiled in every part
Jesus, my God, Thy blood alone
Hath pow'r sufficient to atone;
Thy blood can make me white as snow,
No sacrifice could cleanse me so
Behold I fall before Thy face;
My only refuge is Thy grace:
No outward forms can make me clean,
The leprosy lies deep within.
No bleeding bird, nor bleeding beast,
Nor hyssop-branch, nor sprinkling priest,
Nor running brook, nor flood, nor sea,
Can wash the dismal stain away.
While guilt disturbs and breaks my peace,
Nor flesh nor soul hath rest nor ease,
Lord, let me hear Thy pard'ning voice,
And make my broken bones rejoice.
