Background

This was sometimes used as an opening number (e.g. at the Brixton Academy) at it was an intense high energy song. We tended to avoid playing this one before or after 'New Life' as I would get confused and start to sing one song over the the other. (I think because the verses are very simular melodically). Also you will note that the year is meantioned in verse 3. This of course was always sung as the current year.

The inspiration was one of those many paralells between old and new testiment in that old coventant features found thier fulfilment in Jesus Christ. The first verse talks about the passover when the blood of the sacifice saved the Israelites from judgement (Exodus 12:3-13). In the second verse it was Pilate and the Israelites who took the blood of Jesus on themselves (Matthew 27:22-26) which leaves the question in verse three of do you want judgement to fall on Jesus for you or would you rather take it on yourself! (Hebrews 9:14-15).

'The Blood'                                        by Martin Day

Long ago in Pharaoh's land the Israelites lay in chains.
God said, 'I'll free you, and you foes will know that your God reigns.'
'Sacrifice a lamb to me, smear it's blood above your door.'
'The Judging Angel there will see, and know you're mine for sure.'

        The blood, the blood, the blood... on your heart or on your hands.
        (Have you got the blood?) On your heart or on your hands.
        (Have you got the blood?) On your heart or on your hands.
        Have you got the blood, have you got the blood?

Pilate stood before the crowd, he gave the right to try.
They didn't give a verdict, but they sentenced Him to die.
Pilate tried to wash his hands but failed to move the stain.
On his hands was Jesus' blood, and there it would remain.

Here now in 1984, this day you face a choice,
A decision for an action. An action you should voice.
Jesus paid your punishment, to win you was his cause.
His life is what it cost: Reject Him; It'll cost you yours.
