They Can’t Take the Blood

Previously recorded by the Perry Sisters.

Written by Diana Perry Gillette

VERSE 1
They took away His dignity
They took away His deity
They stripped Him of the clothes He wore
They thought His name would be no more
But they couldn’t take the life He gave
Or the precious blood that flowed for me
They couldn’t take those blood stains from Calvary

CHORUS
They can’t take the blood from Calvary
They can’t take the pain He suffered for me
They couldn’t take those nails from His hands and His feet
They can’t take those blood-stains from Calvary

VERSE 2
The church today is in need of prayer
They’ve taken away the altar there
It has no meaning for today
They find no time to kneel and pray
But we need a cleansing from above
For it’s still the blood that sets men free
They could never take those bloodstains from Calvary

TAG
They couldn’t take those nails from His hands and His feet
They will never take those bloodstains from Calvary
