Blessing without Blemish

Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot… Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” (1 Peter 1:18-23). 

The Lamb of God for us was slain;
For us His precious blood was shed,
That we may no more live in vain,
But rather for the Lord instead. 

Redeemed therefore from vain behavior
Which we received from our tradition,
We found in Jesus Christ our Savior
New life instead of dead religion.

The seed by which we’re born again
From God is incorruptible:   
The Word of God transforms us when
We trust in Christ to save our soul. 

The Word of God forever stands  
Unblemished, like our Savior’s blood,  
To rescue us by His commands
Like Noah’s ark throughout flood. 

Lord, thank You for redeeming love
That paid redemption’s awful price
When You descended from above
As our unblemished Sacrifice.

O Lord, by Your unblemished Word,
We now proclaim Your great salvation. 
O may Your blessing now be heard
That rescues us from condemnation!
