I Come by the Blood

Steve and Vikki Cook, 1994

Verse 1
You are the perfect and righteous God,
Whose presence bears no sin.
You bid me come to your holy place,
How can I enter in, when your presence bears no sin?
Through Him who poured out His life for me,
The Atoning Lamb of God.
Through Him and His work alone I boldly come!

Chorus
I come by the Blood,
I come by the Cross
Where Your mercy flows
From hands pierced for me.
For I dare not stand on my righteousness,
My every hope rests on what Christ has done
And I come by the Blood.

Verse 2
You are the high and exalted King,
The One the angels fear.
So far above me in ev’ry way,
Lord how can I draw near
To the One the angels fear?
Through Him who laid down His life for me,
And ascended to Your side,
Through Him, through Jesus alone, I boldly come!

Chorus
I come by the Blood,
I come by the Cross
Where Your mercy flows
From hands pierced for me.
For I dare not stand on my righteousness,
My every hope rests on what Christ has done
And I come by the Blood.
