Matt Redman – Nothing But The Blood lyrics

Your blood speaks a better word
Than all the empty claims I've heard upon this earth
Speaks righteousness for me
And stands in my defense
Jesus it's Your blood
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
Your cross testifies in grace
Tells of the Father's heart to make a way for us
Now boldly we approach
Not by earthly confidence
It's only Your blood
We thank You for the blood
We thank You for the blood
We praise You for the blood
We praise You for the blood
Nothing but Your blood
Nothing but Your blood King Jesus

    At times I have enjoy this song and find it reflective and at times meaningful. But I think there are a few places in the song that could be writen better. I find there is too much emphases on blood in this song. I just find thanking/praising jesus is too joyful of a reflection on the concept of jesus being beaten and bleeding because of our sin. Also I find it hard to invision blood talking and standing in our defense. Would make for an interesting video though.
