Seize the Moment – Day 865

Today’s hymn focus will be

Are You Washed in the Blood?



1 Peter 1:18-19(NASV95)

knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.”


First published in 1878, this hymn was written by Elisha Hoffman. He was a minister in the Evangelical Church. He is also known for writing “I Must Tell Jesus”, “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”, and “Glory to His Name”. It is both a call for salvation and a song that enumerates some of the many blessings of being washed in the blood.


Are you washed in the blood, in the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb

Are your garments spotless, are they white as snow

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb


We need to wake up and proclaim with a resounding “YES” that we are washed, our sins forgiven, and our lives made whole through the precious blood of Jesus. It is through our relationship with Him that we are able to be faithful in our commitment to our Lord and Savior.
