Without the shedding of blood
There is no remission for sin;
For the life of the flesh is in blood
I press on that Christ I may win.
For the blood of bulls and of goats
My sin these cannot take away;
But God put His Son to the Rod
Once and for all on that day.

For Jesus said unto his Father
'Lo, I come to do thy will O God'
Then offered himself as a sacrifice -
To save man from God's wrath and rod.
The blood of his life he surrendered
Is the eternal altar of grace
For there is NO more offering for sin
Because remission HAS taken place.

Hebrews 10:4-18
