Awesome Lyrics!

Man, I love this song.  The words were written by John Newton.  Check it out!  And, you can listen to Jars of Clay’s version of the song here, if you’d like!

Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder
John Newton

Let us love and sing and wonder,
Let us praise the Savior’s name
He has hushed the law’s loud thunder,
He has quenched Mt. Sinai’s flame;
He has washed us with His blood,
He has washed us with His blood,
He has washed us with His blood,
He has brought us near to God

Let us love the Lord who bought us,
Pities us when enemies,
called us by His grace and taught us,
gave us ears and gave us eyes;
He has washed us with His blood,
He has washed us with His blood,
He has washed us with His blood,
He presents our souls to God

Let us sing, though fierce temptations
threaten hard to bear us down
For the Lord, our strong salvation,
holds in view the conqu’ror’s crown.

Let us wonder; grace and justice
join and point to mercy’s store;
when through grace in Christ our trust is,
justice smiles and asks no more;
He who washed us with His blood,
He who washed us with His blood,
He who washed us with His blood,
Has secured our way to God

So let us praise and join the chorus
of the saints enthroned on high;
here they trusted Him before us,
now their praises fill the sky.
You have washed us with Your blood,
You have washed us with Your blood,
You have washed us with Your blood,
You are worthy, Lamb of God

About Joe Eaton

I praise God that my standing before Him has nothing to do with who I am or what I've done; it is found solely in the perfect life that Christ lived in my place, and His which atoned for my sin. "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of God"..."There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
