Petra – All Over Me lyrics

Words and music by Bob Hartman

All over me, all over me
I've got the blood of an innocent man
All over me

He never did anything to hurt anyone
But He said something bout being God's own Son
Some people believed Him, some people received Him
Some people wouldn't stop till they saw Him die

Like an innocent lamb He was taken away
He never opened His mouth He had nothing to say
He just let them accuse Him, He just let them abuse Him
And the people wouldn't stop till they saw Him die

They nailed His hands and His feet to the wood
At the foot of His cross all His enemies stood
He said "Father forgive them" - He gave them all He could give them
Then He gave up His life and they watched Him die

They laid His body in a rich man's tomb
But He rose from the dead and He's coming back soon
You can choose to believe it, you can choose to receive it
You can choose to believe that He did over you

    Jesus is the innocent man. His shed blood provides forgiveness for my sins, as his body was tortured to take on my sins. Now his blood is what makes me innocent in the eyes of god the father. When god looks at me, he doesn't see my sin, he sees the perfect blood sacrifice of his son, the lamb of god. This blood covers me because I receive it by faith. This blood was symbolized in the old testament when the jews put blood of a spotless lamb on their doorposts the night the death angel came into egypt to kill the firstborn of all who did not have the blood over their doorpost.
