Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.@Isaiah 1:18

What! lay my sins on Jesus?
God’s well belovèd Son!
No! ’tis a truth most precious,
That God even that has done.

Refrain

Hallelujah, Jesus saves me,
He makes me white as snow.
Hallelujah, Jesus saves me,
He makes me white as snow.

Yes, ’tis a truth most precious,
To all who do believe,
God laid our sins on Jesus,
Who did the load receive.

Refrain

What! bring our guilt to Jesus?
To wash away our stains;
The act is passed that freed us,
And naught to do remains.
