Redeemed Hymn 117 – Not All the Blood of Beasts

“For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.” -Heb 10:4

1 Not all the blood of beasts,

On Jewish altars slain,

Could give the guilty

Conscience peace,

Or wash away the stain.


2 But Christ the heavenly Lamb,

Takes all our sins away;

A sacrifice of nobler name

And richer blood than they.


3 My faith would lay her hand

On that dear head of Thine,

While like a penitent I stand,

And there confess my sin.


4 My soul looks back to see

The burdens Thou didst bear,

When hanging on the cursed tree,

And knows her guilt was there.


5 Believing, we rejoice

To see the curse remove:

We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice

And sing His bleeding love!
