Verse 1:
     B2                        G♯m7
Your blood speaks a better word 
                        B2                          G♯m7
Than all the empty claims I've heard upon this earth.
                           F♯ 
Speaks righteousness for me 
                        E
And stands in my defence, 
                          B2    G♯m7    F♯ 
And Jesus, it's Your blood.
Verse 2: 
Your cross testifies in grace,
Tells of the Father's heart to make a way for us.
Now boldly we approach,
Not by earthly confidence,
It's only by Your blood.
Chorus:
B2
What can wash away our sins?
G♯m7
What can make us whole again?
F♯ 
Nothing but the blood, 
E                        B2   F♯    E
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
B2
What can wash us pure as snow?
G♯m7
Welcomed as the friends of God?
F♯ 
Nothing but the blood,             [Last time]
E                        B2    G♯m7 F♯   E   B2
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

YOUR BLOOD SPEAKS A BETTER WORD
Than all the empty claims I've heard upon this earth
Speaks righteousness for me
And stands in my defense
Jesus, it's Your blood

What can wash away our sins?
What can make us whole again?
Nothing but the blood
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can wash us pure as snow
Welcomed as the friends of God?
Nothing but Your blood
Nothing but Your blood, King Jesus

Your cross testifies in grace
Tells of the Father's heart to make a way for us
Now boldly we approach
Not earthly confidence
It's only by Your blood
