Chorus:
The blood, only through the blood can sins be washed away, restoring us to god
The blood, through the blood alone can we approach the throne
Not by works we've done, it's only, only through the blood (of jesus it washes white as snow)

The angel of death was passing through the jewish town
Above the door of family was the blood of a lamb
No need to search for a bag of silver to hang upon the door
For the only thing that could atone forever was the blood and nothing more

Now many think that god will overlook their failures when he sees the deeds they do
Being kind to friends and being good to neighbors they hope will get them through
But the kindest man is still a wayward sinner who needs to be restored
And the only thing that will atone forever is the blood and nothing more

Bridge:
Some through the water, some through the flood, some through the fire,
But all through the blood - the blood.

Chorus #2:
The blood, only through the blood sins are washed away, restoring us to god
The blood, through the blood alone can we approach the throne
Not by works we've done, it's only, only through the blood

Tag:
It's only, only through the blood
Only, only through the blood, only through the blood.
