There Is Power in the Blood- Lewis Edgar Jones

     
Lewis Edgar Jones was born February 8th, 1865, in Yates City, Illinois, and died September 1st, 1936. Jones grew up on a farm outside of Davenport, Iowa, until he left at age 21. He attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, where he was a classmate of the old-time preacher, Billy Sunday. Of the more than 200 hymns which Lewis Jones wrote in his lifetime, "There Is Power in the Blood" has long been his most famous. Like most of his songs, this one was written after a preacher's stirring address, on this occasion after hearing a message on the "Power in the blood of Jesus" at a camp meeting in Mountain Lake, Maryland.

This song, and others he wrote continue to echo in churches across the world. Little did the modest man know that his hobby of hymn writing would be his most enduring legacy.


"There Is Power in the Blood"

Would you be free from your burden of sin?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

There is pow’r pow’r, wonderworking pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonderworking pow’r
In the precious blood of the Lamb.
 
Would you be free from your passion and pride?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide,
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.
 
Would you be whiter, much whiter than snow?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Sin stains are lost in its lifegiving flow,
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.
 
Would you do service for Jesus your King?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you live daily his praises to sing?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.
Colossians 3:16
