Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be like wool.@Isaiah 1:18

Jesus is waiting His grace to bestow;
Sin red like crimson He makes white as snow;
Loving us freely, His life-blood He gave;
Blessèd Redeemer! He’s mighty to save.

Refrain

Mighty to save, mighty to save,
Jesus is mighty to save;
Mighty to save, mighty to save,
Jesus is mighty to save.

Standing alone in the strife we shall fail,
Close to our leader His might will prevail;
Or if a blessing for others we crave,
Pray on, believing—He’s mighty to save.

Refrain

Take Him the burden that weighs on your heart,
Take Him the trouble, He’ll comfort impart;
Held by His hand, we can walk on the wave;
Look up to Jesus, He’s mighty to save.

Refrain

Up from the valley the darkness is gone
When Jesus brings there the beauty of dawn;
Victory, glad victory, we sing o’er the grave!
Glory to Jesus, He’s mighty to save.

Refrain
