What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the Red Rain of Jesus

No matter what Peter Gabriel says below , everyone knows "Red Rain" is also/ultimately/thematically and rhematically about the blood of Jesus (Right, Scott?):


Gabriel, Natalie Merchand and REM version:

1994 on Letterman:

9/11 Tribute (not an official version):


2009 WOMAD:

Remake (with a twist):

I wouldn't be surprised if Christian bands covered it ..I prefer see especially David Ruis, who snippets it Bono-style; heweaves and namechecks the title into "By Your Blood".
(From a great album)

Of course, there is (inevitably) a Christian band called "Red Rain"
