Power in the Blood

I’ve been thinking a lot about blood recently. I know, kinda weird. Part of it comes with the territory of writing an Amish/vampire story. With vampires, you have to deal with blood. One reason I think this is such a powerful spiritual story is because blood is used in scripture. A lot. There is power in the blood. Jesus’ blood. He shed his blood for you and me, for our sins, so that we might be washed free, cleansed of our sins. I love this old hymn.

Power in the Blood
By Lewis E. Jones

Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s pow’r in the blood,
Pow’r in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.

There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the precious blood of the Lamb.
