Red Is For The Blood

We had the privilege this past Sunday of being led in worship by the Andrew Brown Band.  They are amazing and I wanted to share the lyrics of this song written by Andrew.  He had been on a mission trip in Africa, speaking with a little girl about salvation bracelets.  She was explaining to him what all the colors in the bracelet meant and when she came to the red one, she said, "this is the red one.  It's for the blood of Jesus.  And it's my favorite." He said: "it's my favorite too".  He wrote this song when he returned home.  It's a beautiful song and perfect for this Holy Week.  You can find them on iTunes.


Red Is For The Blood

Who am I
That You would know my name
Come and die
To take this sinner's place
Give your life
To save this broken race
I am Yours


Here I stand
At the Cross where You bled
Covered in love
Covered in red

Red is for the blood
For the love
For the mercy pouring down
For the One
Took my nails
Took my sin
Took my crown
It's for the Father 
Who would NOT give up
Until this one was found
It's for the blood of Jesus
Red is for the blood
It's for Your blood

You have eyes
To see what I can't see
Search through time
To the heart of me
Crucified
To set this captive free
Now I'm Yours

Here I stand
At the Cross where You bled
Covered in love
Covered in red

Red is for the blood
For the love
For the mercy pouring down
For the One
Took my nails
Took my sin
Took my crown
It's for the Father
Who would NOT give up
Until this one was found
It's for the blood of Jesus
Red is for the blood
It's for Your blood

"It's for the Father Who would not give up until this one was found..."
