Full Text

1 My sins once were deeper than the crimson,
Which Christ shed upon the cruel tree;
But now they are whiter than the snow-drift,
Since the Lord has redeemed me.

I know for myself and not another,
I’m saved, I’m saved,
Yes, I know for myself and not another,
His blood washes white as snow.

2 I know when His voice in love and pardon,
Spoke peace to my sad and burden’d soul;
I know from my guilt and sin He cleans’d me,
And now thro’ the blood I’m whole. [Refrain]

3 I know that my life is fill’d with sunshine,
For Christ ev’ry moment dwells with me;
I k now there is now no condemnation
Since Jesus has set me free. [Refrain]
