Leviticus 12, 13
“I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me” ( Pss. 51:5 KJV).
From the beginning of my life my contact has been with the unclean—how than can a man become pure? The atonement blood that cleanses my mother must avail also for me.
O Lamb of God, what a sacrifice Thou art! Whose blood could avail like Thine?
Goat’s blood could not cleanse for animals are nonmoral.
My own blood could not avail for I am immoral.
Only Thou art perfectly moral, and only Thy blood could be of any effect.
