You have the power to make the seasons change
The river flows for You, the wind whispers Your name
For me You left Your throne and traded crown for thorns instead
I'm safe within not by Your skin but because Your blood was red

Some say You're black, You're white, they question if You're real
We treat You like we treat ourselves, I wonder how You feel
To see Your children fight inspite of the tears for us You've shed
Doesn't matter what color You are as long as Your blood was red

For it's strong enough to wash away my sins
And it's pure enough to cleanse me deep within
And it's real enough to find me when I'm lost
Great enough to die upon the cross
It doesn't matter what color You are as long as Your blood was

We may be different but the God we serve's the same
Yet every Sunday we separate and bring the Father pain
Your name is higher than any other yet You took my place instead
And now my sins are washed away because Your blood was red

For it's strong enough to wash away my sins
And it's pure enough to cleanse me deep within
And it's real enough to find me when I'm lost
Great enough to die upon the cross

Doesn't matter what color you are
As long as Your blood was red

O precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
No other fount I know

Doesn't matter what color you are
As long Your blood was red (x2)

Doesn't matter what color I am
As long Your blood was red
