Hymn: TLH 156: Not all the Blood of Beasts

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


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 burden 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.
