Representative Text

1 As far as the west is removed from the east,
He banished my sins, both the greatest and least;
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?

2 Like clouds they had gathered, obscuring the sun;
He blotted them out, there remaineth not one;
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?

3 I could not have settled the least of my debts;
He paid the great price, and He even forgets;
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?

4 My sins were as scarlet, and crimson the stains;
He made them like snow, and no vestige remains;
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?

5 My guilt and my need His great love have revealed;
Once wounded for me, by His stripes I am healed;
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?

6 And this is the reason I’m pardoned today,
Because with His blood He has washed them away;
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
My sins are forgiven,— Are yours?
