I will Pass over You

“Meet” here is used in one of its original meanings, “fit or suited”. “Stay” has the meaning of “support” here.

Verse 1:
When God the way of life would teach
And gather all His own,
He puts them safe beyond the reach
Of death, by blood alone.

Refrain:
It is His word, God’s precious word,
It stands forever true;
When I, the Lord, shall see the blood,
I will pass over you.

Verse 2:
By Christ, the sinless Lamb of God,
The precious blood was shed,
When He fulfilled God’s holy word,
And suffered in our stead.

Verse 3:
O soul, for thee salvation thus
By God is freely giv’n;
The blood of Christ atones for sin,
And makes us meet for heav’n.

Verse 4:
The wrath of God that was our due,
Upon the Lamb was laid;
And by the shedding of His blood,
The debt for us was paid.

Verse 5:
How calm the judgment hour shall pass
To all who do obey
The word of God about the blood,
And make that word their stay.

El. Nathan./James McGranahan
