There’s wonderful power in the blood.


Power

Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

There is power, power, wonder working power
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is power, power, wonder working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb.

Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide;
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Sin stains are lost in its life giving flow.
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Would you do service for Jesus your king?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood;
Would you live daily His praises to sing?
There’s wonderful power in the blood.

Words & Music: Lew­is E. Jones, 1899.

Story:

This is a great old hymn written during a camp meeting in 1899 by Lewis Jones. Lewis graduated from Moody Bible Institute and worked for the YMCA. He wrote hymns on the side, and this song has endured for over 100 years now, encouraging many generations to overcome temptations through the “precious blood of the Lamb.” Jones wrote this song at a camp meet­ing at Mount­ain Lake Park, Mar­y­land.
