I hear the Savior say

1
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.
2
Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots,
And melt the heart of stone.
3
For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim—
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
4
And when, before the throne,
I stand in Him complete,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
My lips shall still repeat.

Even though our hearts were filled with sin, God loved us and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace. This song is such a blessing!

This is the heart of the Gospel, Christ came to save sinners, of which I am the greatest. No matter the sin stain, it all appears the same to God and must be accounted for. Jesus Blood cleanses all stains no matter how bad, to the point God does not see them, our account is paid in full. Praise God for his Grace and may we send all thanks, through our faithfulness to Him who redeemed us!!!

This Resurrection Sunday in quarantine I lift my praises to my Redeemer. This song reminds me to be in awe of what HE has done, what HE is doing, and what HE will do. The best is yet to come!

The original song as written by Elvina Hall had 5 stanzas. The hymnal. net version is the one used in most hymnals. The tune and the theme make it easy to add and combine stanzas. Here it is as Elvina originally wrote it:

1. I hear my Savior say,

Thy strength indeed is small,

Thou has nought thy debt to pay,

Find in me thy all in all.

--------------

2. same as Hymnal. net stanza 3 except the first word "For" was originally "Yes,".

-----------------

3. An now complete in him,

My robe his righteousness,

Close sheltered 'neath his side,

I am divinely blest.

-----------

4. When from my dying bed

My ransomed soul shall rise,

Then, "Jesus paid it all",

Shall rend the vaulted skies.

-----------------

5. And when before the throne

I stand in him complete,

I'll lay my trophies down,

All down at Jesus' feet.
