Power, exceeding great pow’r is to us

1
Power, exceeding great pow’r is to us,
  To us who believe, us who receive!
Power that raised Christ, yes, pow’r glorious
  Is giv’n to His Body, the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, resurrection pow’r,
    To the church, to the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, resurrection pow’r,
    Given to His Body, the church!
2
Power that set Christ at God’s own right hand,
  This pow’r is to us—yes, even us!
Power above every name that is named
  Is giv’n to His Body, the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, all-transcending pow’r,
    To the church, to the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, all-transcending pow’r,
    Given to His Body, the church!
3
Power that put all things under His feet
  Is ours here and now—right here and now!
Power subjecting all, power complete,
  Is giv’n to His Body, the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, all-subduing pow’r,
    To the church, to the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, all-subduing pow’r,
    Given to His Body, the church!
4
Power that made Him o’er all things the Head
  Is now to the church, now to the church!
Power, such pow’r, will be exhibited
  O’er all through His Body, the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, overruling pow’r,
    To the church, to the church!
  There is pow’r, pow’r, overruling pow’r,
    Given to His Body, the church!

There is power in the blood, which is our firm foundation, but also there is resurrection power for the church who believes, see the verses below, the song is based on this:

EPHESIANS 1:19-23

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and HIS INCOMPARABLY GREAT POWER FOR US WHO BELIEVE. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted WHEN HE RAISED CHRIST FROM THE DEAD and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

This song is NOT a classic as you changed the words. Notice people they do NOT have the author. You left out the most important part. There is power, power, wonder working power IN THE BLOOD, IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB. Those are the true lyrics of the song. If you take the blood out which is where Jesus blood line comes from which is the Father you have destroyed the diety of Christ.

What you are perpetuating in this song is not the true song and it DOES make a difference.
