Nothing But The Blood of Jesus

Nothing But the Blood of Jesus

Robert Lowry 1826-1899

Robert Lowry was a literature professor and pastor of several churches during his lifetime. He enjoyed writing music for gospel songs.  He worked with Fanny Crosby as well as writing some hymns himself. 

The music is simple with only a five note range and two basic chords for the guitar. The music reflects the simple message , “ What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”

 What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus; What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    • Refrain: Oh! precious is the flow That makes me white as snow; No other fount I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; For my cleansing this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    This is all my hope and peace, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Now by this I’ll overcome— Nothing but the blood of Jesus; Now by this I’ll reach my home— Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

    Glory! Glory! This I sing— Nothing but the blood of Jesus, All my praise for this I bring— Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
