When I see the blood-..

A lamb without blemish blood sacrifice must be,
On the door post every Israelite the blood plan to see,
The death angel will pass on a journey through.
 And when I see the blood I will pass over you. 

The lord God had spoken, wasn’t nothing new
Yet as the death angels pass many first born were slew.
The Israelites obeyed not knowing the time is due
And when I see the blood I will pass over you. 

The blood of sheep, or goat, no longer atone,
Jesus came on the scene and bore the cross alone.
It’s a simple act of faith, believing God’s word is true.
And when I see the blood I will pass over you.

Thank God for the blood that gives us the power,
Praise to God almighty, each minute of every hour.
If it wasn’t for the blood we would still be sad and blue,
And when I see the blood I will pass over you. 

Sweat drops of blood from his body fell
A token for our sins, a redemption story to tell,
To be salt and light in this dark world below
And when I see the blood I will pass over you 

Exodus 12:13

    What can wash away our sins? What can make us whole again? Nothing but the blood, nothing but the blood of Jesus What can wash us pure as snow Welcomed as the friends of God? Nothing but Your blood, nothing but Your blood King Jesus, King Jesus it's agreat song, God bless you and a great testomony you write from diane
