This song was borne of the conversation of four songwriters getting to know one another, sharing our own stories: of brokenness of family, loss of children, and of our hope in the redemptive power of Jesus to heal our brokenness. Some of our church’s communities are based in prisons, and we imagined a song they could sing from behind bars at the top of their lungs, a song of hope, where no one is too far gone from the redemption and freedom that Jesus offers. From the inward observant verses to ending with the outward releasing of truth, this song reaches to the depths of desperation and reveals a journey that leads to hope in Jesus. Together we all sing of the unending power of Jesus’ blood.

Lyrics

[Verse]


I was an heir without a kingdom
I was an orphan with no home
These lungs were full of promise
But emptiness I chose

[Chorus]


Oh the power, unending power
Of Jesus’ blood
That washes white as snow
Oh the power amazing power
Of redeeming love
This grace unshakable

[Verse]


I'm trading slavery for sonship
I'm trading shackles for the keys
My inheritance the kingdom
Where my Father is the King

[Chorus]


Oh the power unending power
Of Jesus’ blood
That washes white as snow
Oh the power amazing power
Of redeeming love
This grace unshakable

[bridge]


You are the way to life and freedom
(oh the power)
You are the truth that can’t be shaken
(oh the power)
You are the rock of my salvation
(oh the power)
I’m singing Oh the power of Jesus’ blood

[Chorus]


Oh the power unending power
of Jesus’ blood
That washes white as snow
Oh the power amazing power
Of redeeming love
This grace unshakable

[bridge 2]


You're the way to life and freedom
(oh the power)
You're the truth that can’t be shaken
(oh the power)
You're the rock of my salvation
(oh the power)
I’m singing Oh the power
Oh the power
Oh the power of Jesus’ blood
