Look Inside
Ponder the impact of Christ’s Passion with this meditative arrangement for SATB and piano by Mark Knickelbein. The music follows the mood of the text as it describes the mournful crucifixion scene carrying through sacramental themes to the victory of the end times. This new text by Lisa M. Clark focuses on the implications of Matthew 27:25, “His blood be on us and on our children!” and can be used throughout the season of Lent and especially Ash Wednesday and Holy Week.

We wash our hands to rid the stain
And scrub our guilty hearts in vain.
Our tears and jeers are hurled His way;
We spit with spite and rage and say:
“Now crucify, and hear our plea!
The blood of Jesus on us be.”

We whip our Savior deep with scars
To punish ev’ry crime of ours.
We shake our fists and fight and swear
And add to all that Christ would bear.
We raise Him up and clearly see
The blood of Jesus on us be.

The price He paid we surely know.
Forgiveness God will now bestow.
We join His Table without fear;
We touch His blood and body here.
Our crimes are gone, and we are free:
The blood of Jesus on us be.

When Christ returns on that Last Day,
May I be bold enough to say,
“Though I deserve the whole world’s blame,
My Lord paid all, removes my shame.
I now can sing eternally:
The blood of Jesus covers me!”
