Jesus Paid It All

I found this song particularly encouraging this weekend…

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

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r 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
