Thankful For The Blood

INTRO
VERSE
There is so much in my life that I am thankful for
A loving family and good friends—everything a man could want
And I wouldn’t trade one single moment even if I could
But of all that I’ve been blessed with—I’m most thankful for the blood

CHORUS
That precious blood of God’s son who gave His life for me
That precious blood that was spilled—upon the cross at Calvary
So let tomorrow come and strip me of what this world can afford
My hands I’ll raise and I’ll shout in praise
I’m so thankful for the blood

(Like Intro)

VERSE
I’ll never be the astronaut I dreamed of as a child
Or take the oath as President—or even run the fastest mile
But I will live what he died for—and be all for Him I should
With no regrets or bitter tears—just thankful for the blood

CHORUS
That precious blood of God’s son who gave His life for me
That precious blood that was spilled—upon the cross at Calvary
So let tomorrow come and strip me of what this world can afford
My hands I’ll raise and I’ll shout in praise
I’m so thankful for the blood

BRIDGE
That blood—that pardoned all my sin
And gave me life—that will never end--- Oh, oh

INSTRUMENTAL

REPRISE
So let tomorrow come and strip me of what this world can afford
My hands will raise and I’ll shout His praise
I’m so thankful for the blood

TAG
Yes, my hands will raise and I’ll shout His praise
I’m so thankful for the blood
For that--blood
