How I love to tell of the Great Escape on Egypt’s darkest night.
This story has such a special place in this needy heart of mine.
I’m amazed to think the only thing to be spared from certain death
Was a simple faith put on display over doors adorned in red.
A perfect lamb, so innocent – a chosen lamb would die.
And I can almost hear them sing before that fateful night,
“I will dip my brush in the saving blood and all around my door,
I will paint the stain of another’s pain, through grateful tears, adorn.
Nothing else I need but a covering that a spotless lamb has shed.
Heaven’s wrath will flee passing over me at the sight of crimson red!”
Oh, the countless ways and the countless days I have fallen short of Him.
And the Enemy, unrelentingly, will accuse me of my sin.
But the boundless bliss – there’s hope for this! There’s a cure to which I cling:
With a simple faith, Christ’s blood I claim – now I’m clean before the King!
The Perfect Lamb, so innocent – for all my sin He died.
And this is now the song I sing to all the guilt inside: (… Chorus)
Hallelujah, Jesus’ blood is sufficient, yes, enough!
I am clean beneath its flood – Hallelujah for the blood!
Come and dip your brush…
