Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: My sins, my sins, my Savior! Their guilt I never knew Till with You in the desert I near Your passion drew; Till with You in the garden I heard Your pleading pray’r, And saw Your blood-sweat falling That told Your sorrow there.
Verse 2: My sins, my sins, my Savior! They captivate my view, I cannot lift my head up, Save only, Christ, to You; In You is all forgiveness, In You, abundant grace, My shadow and my sunshine, The brightness of Your face.
Verse 3: My sins, my sins, my Savior! How fierce on You they fall; Seen thru Your gentle patience, I, tenfold feel them all; But now they are forgiven, Salvation heals my pain; You bore my grief and sorrow, When You were scorned and slain.
Verse 4: My songs, my songs, my Savior, Thru-out my time of woe, Shall magnify Your goodness To sinful men below; Your mercy and Your favor, Whose presence from above Relieve those hearts, my Savior, That live in You and love.
