Lyrics

Sin no more, thy soul is free,
Christ has died to ransom thee;
Now the power of sin is o’er,
Jesus bids thee, Sin no more.

Refrain

Sin no more, thy soul is free,
Christ has died to ransom thee;
Sing the message o’er and o’er,
Christ forgives thee, Sin no more.

Sin no more, but closely keep
Near the Hand that guards the sheep;
Shun the snares that lured before,
Trembling go, and sin no more.

Refrain

Sin no more, His blood hath bought,
Think on what His love hath wrought;
Think of what for thee He bore,
Weeping, go, and sin no more.

Refrain

Sin no more, O sin no more,
Jesus lives to keep thee pure;
If o’ertaken He’ll restore,
Saying, Go, and sin no more.
