This song was written and recorded by Chrs Rice… included on the compilation album, Exodus.

Chris Rice is an American singer and songwriter who, while a youth minister, also worked in the contemporary Christian music, contemporary folk and adult contemporary genres. He became a recording artist as well in 1996 after signing a contract with Rocketown Records.
Having taken only 3 years of piano lessons as a child, Rice did not aspire to a career in either music or student work. But frequent invitations to speak and lead music at his church’s youth group events led to more such invitations throughout his college years at the University of Maryland, Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, and Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Communication. While leading music and coaching high school soccer teams, he began writing songs. What began as weekend and summer work with youth and college students soon turned into a full-time career during his twenties and thirties, and prompted Rice to write and perform mainly on the guitar.
For those two decades, Rice spent his time as an itinerant speaker and songwriter/musician, playing for high school and college conferences and camps nationwide. This schedule prepared Chris for his career as a signed recording artist, touring the country with a full band.

I first heard Chris Rice on a compilation CD, and have enjoyed him ever since. Most of his lyrics are very thought-provoking and clever.

This song is actually just a remake of that old hymn, “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus”.
Bible Reference… Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20; Romans 3:25,26;
Ephesians 1:7; 2:13; Hebrews 9:14; 13:12

Nothing can wash away my sin. Nothing can wash away my sin.
Nothing can wash away my sin. Nothing, nothing, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can make the devil run. Nothing can make the devil run.
Nothing can make the devil run. Nothing, nothing, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can bring me peace with God. Nothing can bring me peace with God.
Nothing can bring me peace with God.
Nothing, nothing, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can lead me to Your throne. Nothing can lead me to Your throne.
Nothing can lead me to Your throne. Nothing, nothing, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can make Your people one. Nothing can make Your people one.
Nothing can make Your people one. Nothing, nothing, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
