But for the Blood lyrics

Post by blessedbyhim » Wed Sep 16, 2009 5:44 pm

I need to find the words to a song that I love. The lyrics for the chorus are:

Great is the mercy, Great is the love,
Great are my many sins but for the blood
I'd still be drowning in death's bitter flood
Hopelessly perishing but for the blood.

Can anyone help me with this?
Thank you! God bless.

But for the Blood lyrics

Hope this is what your looking for.... God Bless

I had no one to blame, how I longed to hide my face
I was so ashamed, for all the wrong I'd done,
and I knew I had to pay, oh I was bound to faces hells flame
I'd be there today, oh my friend but for the blood

But for the blood, shed on calverys tree
but for the blood, there'd be no hope for you and me
for all my rightousness was filthy rags
and thats all I'd ever be
but for the blood that cleansed and set me free.

Even now I get so low
you know the devil he lets me know
I'm so undeserving, I'm unworthy of God's love
and oh yes I know its true
but here I am with the chosen few
I stand today, yes I'm saved but by the blood.

But for the blood, shed on calverys tree
but for the blood, there'd be no hope for you and me
for all my rightousness was filthy rags
and thats all I'd ever be
but for the blood that cleansed and set me free.
but for the blood that cleansed and set me free.

I Think This Is The One your looking for It is Song By The Hoppers

They found him in the garden of Gethsemane,
they led him to a cross which he took willingly
for our salvation he laid his life down,
his precious blood fell like tears to the ground

Great is the Mercy Great is the Love
Great are my many sins But for the Blood
I'd still be drowning in death's bitter flood
Hopelessly perishing, but for the blood.

I tried to buy mercy with all my good
I tried to earn grace but there's no way I could
If I gained the whole world I'd still be lost
Without the blood Jesus shed on the cross.

Great is the Mercy Great is the Love
Great are my many sins But for the Blood
I'd still be drowning in death's bitter flood
Hopelessly perishing, but for the blood.

Great is the Mercy Great is the Love
Great are my many sins But for the Blood
I'd still be drowning in death's bitter flood
Hopelessly perishing, but for the blood.

Great is the Mercy Great is the Love
Great are my many sins But for the Blood

(I'd still be drowning in death's bitter flood
Hopelessly perishing, but for the blood.)X2


Great is the Mercy Great is the Love
Great are my many sins But for the Blood

(I'd still be drowning in death's bitter flood
Hopelessly perishing, but for the blood.) X2

found what am looking God bless y'all. We would hopelessly perish but through God's divine love He sent his Lamb.. a sacrifice to save us from perishing in sin.

HI guys, I know this has been an old post, but do you guys know who are the actual authors/composers of both songs mentioned above? I would really appreciate a response. :)
