He Blows Away my Bloody Sin

He Blows Away my Bloody Sin

by: Shirley Satterfield

He Blows Away my Bloody Sin 🩸

It has been said
That I am not enough.
And maybe that is so-
For no, I am not all efficient,
But He is all sufficient
Completely omniscient.
For like a Barabbas of old
My sins were stacked high
In a carnal sheepfold.
And if Mary, of Magdalene fame
Had seven devils
Then I had one more,
But Jesus,
He saved me to my core.
So, if I am not enough,
Well, He is much, much more.
He begins where I end.
(For my shattered soul He made amends).

He made amends for me
Up on the cross.
He blows away my heavy dross.
With the ebb and flow
Of the Spirit’s wind
He expelled the Holy breath within.
He blows away my bloody sin.
