The Story Behind The Hymn 'Jesus Paid It All'

by Alvina Hall/John Grape




I hear the Savior say, thy strength indeed is small

Child of weakness, watch and pray, find in me thine all in all.

Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain, he washed it white as snow.

Lord, now indeed I find thy power and thine alone
Can change the leper's spots and melt the heart of stone.

For nothing good have I whereby thy grace to claim
I'll wash my garments white in the Blood of Calvary's Lamb.

Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain, he washed it white as snow.

And when before the throne I stand in him complete
"Jesus died my soul to save" my lips shall still repeat.

Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain, he washed it white as snow.
