What can wash away my sin

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
  Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
  Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
For my cleansing this I see—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my pardon this my plea—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Nothing can my sin erase
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Naught of works, ’tis all of grace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my hope and peace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Thanks for the song. The blood of Jesus can never be underestimated. It's full of power, it heals, delivers and fights our spiritual battles. Praise God!

As a child in the Junior choir we use to sing this song, In those days I thought it very innocent. As time has gone by I have frequently pondered is it necessary for all people to be washed whiter than snow? If it is then there will be many people who will never have life with God because no matter the about of washing in the blood we receive we can never be white. I am grateful for how the almighty made me in the image of God. I love myself just the way I am but still I want to grow so I can be the best me I can be.

Indeed not of works but Grace by the blood.

The first 2 lines popped into my head while I was studying Romans 3:25-128. I am profoundly hearing impaired these days and rely on a cochlear implant. My church homes have long-since stopped singing it. Thank you for posting the words, so that I can hear this wonderful hymn again in my head. Today, it suddenly meant more than it ever has.

This helped me so much. You're such a blessing in my life. To sing this song, it is just so good and blessed by God to have a good song given the glory to God, whom it belongs to!

Found your site by mistake. What a blessing. In a contemporary world, classic hymns always speaks to a deeper hunger within and satisfies my soul. Thank God for the scripture and Truth that is found within the hymns. Timeless.
