Representative Text

1 I came to Jesus, weary, worn, and sad,
He took my sins away, He took my sins away;
And now His love has made my heart so glad,
He took my sins away.

Refrain:
He took my sins away, He took my sins away,
And keeps me singing ev'ry day!
I'm so glad He took my sins away,
He took my sins away.

2 The load of sin was more than I could bear,
He took them all away, He took them all away;
And now on Him I roll my ev'ry care,
He took my sins away. [Refrain]

3 No condemnation have I in my heart,
He took my sins away, He took my sins away;
His perfect peace He did to me impart,
He took my sins away. [Refrain]

4 If you will come to Jesus Christ today,
He'll take your sins away, He'll take your sins away;
And keep you happy in His love each day,
He'll take your sins away. [Refrain]
