Violently they grabbed His arms
As they tightly strapped each wrist
With the hellish looks that
A strong armed soldier
Whip clenched in his fist
Laced with chips of bone
They beat Him hard
From His shoulders to His feet
And it sliced right
Through His olive skin
Just like razors through a sheet

Countless times the blood splattered
As each inhuman lash was given
Several times His knees gave way
As His flesh just hung like ribbons
Then surprisingly He turned His head
Though the words He used were few
The soldier's face turned pale
When He said: "This blood is for you"

Uncaringly they tossed a garment
Across His weakened form
And His blood pressure fell deathly low
As the crowds began to swarm
They forced Him to carry His cross uphill
As His face they punched and smacked
While the splinters from the crisscrossed beam Dug deep into His back

Through lack of sleep and dehydration
His tongue began to swell
And weakened by His loss of blood
This Prophet, Teacher fell
When He did some blood splattered
On a man named Simon's shoe
And as he bent to wipe it off
The Prophet looked and said:
"Simon, This blood is for you"

This blood can save the soul
Heal the sick, mend the heart
This blood can give you access
To the very Throne of God
And it still can go the distance
Through the pain to where you are
This blood is for you
The blood of the lamb

Then they pounded a spike
Through the bones in His wrists
Bursting arteries and veins
And as they dropped the cross in
The hole they dug
His body convulsed with pain

Through an agony and torment
That never a soul shall find
He tilts His face towards heaven
With full control of His mind
With more love than any human heard
Before that time or since
He made a statement that to this day
Makes the strongest skeptic wince

He cried "Father God, Forgive them,
For they know not what they do"
And as He gave His life
For those lost in sin
He was saying this blood is for you

And this blood can save the soul
Heal the sick, mend the heart
This blood can give you access
To the very Throne of God
And it still can go the distance
Through the pain to where you are
This blood is for you

If you're lost and alone
And your mind is confused
This blood is for you
If you feel like you have
Been hurt and abused
This blood is for you
The atoning, cleansing,
Blood of the Lamb

This blood can save the soul
Heal the sick, mend the heart
This blood can give you access
To the very Throne of God
And it still can go the distance
Through the pain to where you are
This blood is for you
The blood of the lamb
This blood is for you
The blood of the lamb!
