Not All The Blood Of Beasts

by Issac Watts (1674-1748)

Tune: Moreland S.M.

1 NOT all the blood of beasts
On Jewish altars slain
Could give the guilty conscience peace,
Or wash away its stain.

2 But Christ, the heavenly Lamb,
Took all our guilt away,
A sacrifice of nobler name
And richer blood than they.

3 Our souls look back to see
The burden Thou didst bear,
When hanging on the accursed tree,
For all our guilt was there.

4 Believing, we rejoice
To see the curse remove,
And bless the Lamb with cheerful voice,
And sing redeeming love.
