One Drop of Blood

Print this page    

Standing in the courtroom
When I heard how do you plead
the accuser of the brethren was staring at me

He said we've got your number
There is no escape
For here are your transgressions
Your failures and mistakes

He pointed to the corner
Where the scales of justice stood
I saw so many failures there
There was nothing good

And in that very moment
When it seemed all hope was lost
I said I plead the blood of Jesus
And His death upon the cross

One drop of blood
Fell to the scales
It covered my transgressions
For all the times I failed

The enemy was mighty
He came in like a flood
He was defeated by one drop of blood

I stood and watched in silence
As others were brought in
I saw them start to tremble
When they turned and faced their sin

They offered no excuses
They offered no alibis
The truth was overwhelming
And it would not be denied

Their righteousness like filthy rags
And nothing they could say
They bowed their heads in silence
As they were led away

But for the true believers
Each time it was the same
His glory shown around them as
They called upon His name

One drop of blood
Fell to the scales
It covered their transgressions
For all the times they failed

The enemy was mighty
He came in like a flood
He was defeated by one drop of blood

No greater sacrifice has any other made
O yes he paid the price
With every drop He gave
One drop of blood
Fell to the scales
It covered my transgressions
For all the times I failed

The enemy was mighty
He came in like a flood
He was defeated by one drop of blood

One drop of blood
Fell to the scales
It covered my transgressions
For all the times I failed

The enemy was mighty
He came in like a flood
He was defeated by one drop of blood
