Precious Blood

Sovereign Grace Ministries is offering a free download of the song "Precious Blood" (sung by Shannon Harris), from their new Valley of Vision CD. To listen to the song, just go through the process like you're purchasing it, except that it won't cost you anything.

I've copied the lyrics below:

The Precious Blood

Based on The Valley of Vision prayer, “The Precious Blood”

Words and Music by

Peter Gagnon

Verse 1

Before the cross I kneel and see
The measure of my sin
How You became a curse for me
Though You were innocent
The magnitude of Your great love
Was shown in full degree
When righteous blood, the crimson spill
Rained down from Calvary


Oh, the precious blood
That flowed from Mercy’s side
Washed away my sin
When Christ my Savior died
Oh, the precious blood
Of Christ the crucified
It speaks for me before Your throne
Where I stand justified

Verse 2

And who am I that I should know
This treasure of such worth
My Savior’s pure atoning blood
Shed for the wrath I’d earned
For sin has stained my every deed
My every word and thought
What wondrous love that makes me one
Your priceless blood has bought


A crown of thorns, pierced hands and feet
A body bruised, and Mercy’s plea
