Video: Jesus Your Blood and Righteousness

Loved singing this arrangement by Ruth Buchanan when we were at YLC (now called Equip Conference).

Strangely enough, after searching everywhere, we couldn’t find a recording of it, nor any sheet music to help.

So we made our own – just me and a guitar (and Cheryl humming in the background).

 

Hopefully it’ll be useful for others too.

I’ve also created a chord chart here: Jesus Your Blood And Righteousness [Ruth Buchanan] – D

Verse 1
Jesus, your blood and righteousness,
my beauty are, my glorious dress;
Mid flaming worlds, in these arrayed,
with joy shall I lift up my head;
With joy shall I lift up my head.

Verse 2
Bold shall I stand in that great day,
and none condemn me, try who may;
Fully absolved, through Christ I am,
from sin and fear, from guilt and shame;
From sin and fear, from guilt and shame.

Verse 3
This stainless robe its beauty wears,
when all else fades in passing years,
no age can change its glorious hue,
the robe of Christ is ever new;
The robe of Christ is ever new.

Verse 4
When from the dust of death I arise,
to claim my home beyond the skies;
Then this shall be my only plea,
that Jesus died and lives for me;
That Jesus died and lives for me.

Verse 5
So shall the dead now hear your voice,
let those once lost in sin rejoice;
Their beauty this, their glorious dress,
Jesus, your blood and righteousness;
Jesus, your blood and righteousness;
Jesus, your blood and righteousness.
