Lyrics

All glo­ry to Je­sus be giv­en,
That life and sal­va­tion are free;
And all may be washed and for­giv­en,
And Je­sus can save ev­en me.

Refrain

Yes, Je­sus is migh­ty to save,
And all His sal­va­tion may know;
On His bo­som I lean,
And His blood makes me clean,
For His blood can wash whit­er than snow.

From dark­ness and sin and des­pair,
Out in­to the light of His love,
He has brought me and made me an heir,
To king­doms and man­sions above.

Refrain

Oh, the rap­tur­ous heights of His love,
The mea­sure­less depths of His grace,
My soul all His full­ness would prove,
And live in His lov­ing em­brace.

Refrain

In Him all my wants are sup­plied,
His love makes my hea­ven be­low,
And free­ly His blood is ap­plied,
His blood that makes whit­er than snow.
