Covered by the Blood

A song of penitence and absolution

words and music by Andrew Alder

 

Is the church triumphant

Or just too soon at rest?

Our words and our deeds seem feeble and few

We often stumble

We fail to do our best

The world looks at the Church and says "Where are you?"

 

It's covered by the blood

My precious Jesus

It's covered by the blood

You did not die in vain

Those things we've left undone are covered by the blood

 

Is faith the answer

Will prayer win the day?

When evil and want are so plain to see

Our prayers unanswered

Our plans in disarray

The world asks "Where is God?" and so do we

 

It's covered by the blood

My dear Lord Jesus

It's covered by the blood

You did not die in vain

Those times we fail to trust are covered by the blood

 

Is love the victor

Is Jesus' love the way

Can violence be healed by a gentle touch?

Both in the big decisions

And living every day

The way of the cross asks far too much

 

It's covered by the blood

Come soon Lord Jesus

It's covered by the blood

You did not die in vain 

Even my shallow love is covered by the blood
