Only Your Blood Is Enough

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a fan of Sojourn Music out of Sojourn Church in Louisville. Here’s a song below that you can stream for free (posted with permission) from their album Over the Grave, their first volume of adaptations of Isaac Watts’s hymns.

(You can purchase the MP3 here or get the whole album.)

The rich lyrics are below.

Only Your Blood Is Enough
Words and music by Neil Robins, adapted from “Psalm 51, pt. 2” by Isaac Watts

I am ashamed, conceived in sin, I’ve always been.
Born in a world where Adam’s fall corrupts us.
Rooted is the seed of death in life’s first breath.
The law demands a perfect heart, but I’m defiled in every part

For only Your blood is enough to cover my sin
Only Your blood is enough to cover me

All this guilt disturbs my peace; I find no release.
Who will save me from my crime? I’m helpless.
Behold, I fall before Your face in need of grace.
So speak to me in a gentle voice, for in Your mercies I rejoice.

For only Your blood is enough to cover my sin
Only Your blood is enough to cover me

Lord, create my heart anew (Father, come and make us wise)
Only You are pure and true (Lead us away from our demise)
Lord, You are the remedy (For only your blood can set us free)

For only Your blood can set us free; only Your blood can set us free

No bleeding bird, no bleeding beast
No hyssop branch, no priest,
No running brook, no flood, no sea
Can wash away this stain from me

For only Your blood is enough to cover my sin
For only Your blood is enough to cover me
