Good morning,

I had the opportunity to play some bluegrass gospel tunes with some folks at a church service at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church. Dick Horonjeff recorded our performance. This is our version of a classic tune with somewhat grim imagery.

Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb (A)


Verse 1:
G                              C
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power
        G                          D
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb
        G                     C
Are you fully trusting in his grace this hour
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb

Chorus (after each verse)

G          
Are you washed(are you washed)
       C
In the blood(in the blood)
       G                           D
In the soul cleansing blood of the lamb
         G                          C
Are your garments spotless are they white as snow
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb (turn around)

Verse 2:

G                            C
Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side
        G                          D
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb
       G                       C
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified
        G             D            G
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb

Verse 3:

G                                    C
When the bridegroom cometh will your robes be white
         G                         D
Pure and white in the blood of the lamb
G                               C
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright
       G             D            G
And be washed in the blood of the lamb

The DreamIIIrd Tyme Out (recorded in F)

 

One night as I lay on my pillow, while asleep in a dream i did go.

To the place where they crucified Jesus on that old rugged cross cruel and cold.

There the greatest love story was written, visualize with me if you will.

Our savior on that April morning as he carried the cross up the hill.

 

(Chorus)

I saw the nails, those old rusty nails and the crown made of thorns that he wore.

So sad was the scene that I cried in my dream so great was the pain that he bore.

They scorned and they mocked , he drank the bitter cup as he hung there with two common thieves.

For he had to fulfill his father’s own will and I was right there in a dream.

 

(mandolin instrumental)

 

As I stood there on top of Mount Calvary in his pain I could hear his sad cry.

From the sixth hour till nine there was darkness in my dream oh so helpless was I.

I thank him for that day on the mountain, the price that he paid was supreme.

And in my heart I will carry a picture of what I saw there in a dream
(Chorus)
