Story behind the song
I have been wanting to write a contemporary hymn for some time. My weakness with lyrics makes this particular style of "church" music difficult for me to write. Some time ago a dear lady in our church approached me with some lyrics that she had written, and sure enough, one of the sets of lyrics was well suited for a hymn style.
By His stripes we're healed, By His blood we're cleansed
By His dying we'll live again, With His love He'll lead us home
Oh, the pain He bore for us, How He suffered on the cross
Just so we could have a hope to live eternally with Him
By His stripes we're healed, by His side we'll walk
At His feet we'll kneel and pray
And praise His name forevermore
Oh, the peace will be within us, Oh, how happy we shall be
In the presence of our Savior; Oh, what joy forevermore
By His stripes we’re healed, with His hands we’re blessed
With His grace we’ll soon be home
And walk the streets as pure as gold
Oh, how great all this will be, oh, the beauty we will see
Dwelling with our dear Lord Jesus
Singing His praise before His throne
By His stripes we're healed, by His pardon saved
With His tenderness He loves us, with His mercy we're set free
Can't you hear our Master calling?
Can't you see Him on His way?
Waiting just to take His children home
Yes to take his children home
