Music Monday Extra – Nothing but the Blood

This is another hymn, written by Robert Lowry, recorded by Jars of Clay for their Redemption Songs CD. I thought it was an appropriate Music Monday Extra because it ties in with my post from this morning. It is a reminder that the sin of man would forever keep us in darkness and separated from God if not for the blood of Jesus, willingly shed for us.

If you want to read the lyrics and hear the original melody as written by Lowery, check it out on I love this version by Jars of Clay, though; and one of my favorite things about it is the background vocals by the Blind Boys of Alabama, another of my favorite bands. 

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Thank you, Linda

    Nothing else can cleanse us at all 🙂

    Thanks for the video. What a reminder of what He endured. May I also never forget what He bore to buy my freedom. I am indeed “unworthy of His blood” but happy He took the way of the cross for me.

    Preparations are in gear for Easter production. Please help us pray that souls would be born for His kingdom.


    • Ann, Glad you enjoyed the video. I’ve become a big fan of Jars of Clay lately, though I remain a much bigger fan of Jesus! I will pray for your Easter production; wish I could be there to see it. You’ll have to let us know how it goes. Peace, Linda

  2. I really liked this too, Linda. I listened first and then read your intro . . .so that is who I heard along with Jars of Clay. God really uses those Blind Boys in marvelous ways. The visual with the song . . .was hard. But, I need to know that too. I get so accustomed to saying that He died for me. I don’t want the reality of what that actually means to slip away.
    God bless you for these very special posts!

    • Deb, We went to see The Passion of the Christ when it came out in theaters. I wanted to close my eyes often during the movie, but I didn’t because I wanted to always remember what He did for me. I also own it in DVD, but have never watched it again. I’m glad you enjoyed the song. It’s my favorite on that CD. Peace, Linda
