Representative Text

1 Bring all your sin to the Crucified One,
Jesus will wash it away;
Haste for your life! unto Calvary run,
Jesus will wash it away.

Refrain:
Come, come, and his bidding obey,
Come, come, and believing you’ll say,
Jesus hath saved me praise him today,
Jesus hath washed my sin away.

2 No other fountain for sin can avail,
Jesus will wash it away;
No other comfort when fears shall assail,
Jesus will wash it away. [Refrain]

3 O, what an off’ring for sin he hath made,
Jesus will wash it away;
Come where the price of redemption was paid,
Jesus will wash it away. [Refrain]

4 Sing, all ye ransomed, exultant o’er sin,
Jesus will wash it away;
This is the shout that will victory win,
Jesus will wash it away. [Refrain]
