Lyrics

IT'S GONNA TAKE THE BLOOD OF JESUS

You went to the doctor,
And said "I need an operation"
He said "Are you sick, are you dying?
Tell me where does it hurt?"

You said, "It's not like that at all, Doc,
You see I'm in perfect health,
But if we don't take some Drastic Measures,
I'm gonna be a mother."

It's been about a year now
Since you laid down on that table
And you try and try to forget such "little things"
But it seems you're just not able

Chorus It's gonna take the blood of Jesus
It's gonna take the blood of Jesus
It's gonna take the blood of Jesus
To wash your sins away.

Now I'm not here to condemn you
You can handle that all by yourself
But all those people who defend you
Can't wipe away the guilt and shame you've felt

Chorus

And sometimes you wonder if that baby really died
Cause late in the night, you're sure you hear him cry.

Chorus
