Jesus Paid It All

Album: Holy, Holy, Holy (1865)
  • I hear the savior say
    "Thy strength indeed is small,
    Child of weakness watch and pray,
    Find in me thine all in all."

    Jesus paid it all
    All to him I owe
    Sin had left a crimson stain
    He washed it white as snow.

    For nothing good have I
    Whereby thy grace to claim,
    I'll wash my garments white
    In the blood of calv'ry's lamb.


    And now complete in him
    My robe his righteousness,
    Close sheltered 'neath his side,
    I am divinely blest.


    Lord, now indeed
    I find Thy power and thine alone,
    Can change the leper's spots
    And melt the heart of stone.


    When from my dying bed
    My ransomed soul shall rise,
    "Jesus died my soul to save,"
    Shall rend the vaulted skies.


    And when before the throne
    I stand in him complete,
    I'll lay my trophies down
    All down at Jesus feet.
