All to Christ I Owe, #172


Verse 1
I hear the Saviour 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.

Verse 2
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and that alone,
Can change the leper’s spots,
And melt the heart of stone.

Verse 3
For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim–
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.

Verse 4
When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
Then “Jesus paid it all”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.

Verse 5
And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.
