Jesus Paid it All

Jesus Paid it All
words by Elvina Hall

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

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.

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


Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow. --Isaiah 1:18

Kati, I sooooo love these words. Every time I read the hymns you have chosen and discover there are extra verses, I LONG to go through our hymn book and add the treasured words. There are so many precious phrases in this hymn. I would be hardpressed to say which one speaks to me the most. But here are a few:

"Find in me thine all in all."

"Close sheltered 'neath His side."

"And melt the heart of stone."

And the entire last verse!

Isn't it amazing to know that we, in all our worminess, can truly be made white as snow! Such mercy.

Love to you on this Sunday morning.
