 Not All the Blood of Beasts

Good morning, saints. This hymn sings of God's bleeding love for sinners. The precious love-blood of God shed for His enemies. Oh, that I could grasp and fully appreciate this bloody love, meditate on the profundity of that crimson fountain poured out for my godless addictions and satanic pleasures. The blood that sets me free and repeatedly cleanses me and allows my putrid existence to fearlessly come into the presence of the Great Immortal King of the Universe! Oh, the blood! In truth, the blood of a trillion goats and bulls could never keep my heart right with God for even a minute. Lord Jesus! You are worthy for all eternity! Glory and riches and honor and rapturous praise to the Son of God who was slain for sinners but now lives for ever and ever and ever with the blaze of a trillion celestial suns radiating from his throne.

Let us here on earth sing of His bleeding love! We are redeemed!

Not all the blood of beasts
On Jewish altars slain
Could give the guilty conscience peace
Or wash away the stain.

But Christ, the heav’nly Lamb,
Takes all our sins away;
A sacrifice of nobler name
And richer blood than they.

My faith would lay her hand
On that dear head of Thine,
While, like a penitent, I stand,
And there confess my sin.

My soul looks back to see
The burdens Thou didst bear
When hanging on the cursèd tree,
And hopes her guilt was there.

Believing, we rejoice
To see the curse remove;
We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice,
And sing His bleeding love.

- Isaac Watts
