Hymn From the Heart -- Jesus Paid It ALL

Look at that, two weeks after I decide to do a weekly post, I forget all about it. LOL! Oh well. Just bear with me. You know, "comfort the feeble-minded."

One of my favorite hymns is Jesus Paid It All.  When my babies were, well, babies, I would sing this to them as a lullaby. It was perfect for humming quietly in my alto joyful noise. (Actually, any song sounds better when I "sing" it softly!) And I love the lyrics. They are so simple, and yet profound, making the statement that while I could do nothing at all to merit God's favor, Jesus did everything that was required for my salvation.  He paid my sin debt at Calvary because even in my sins, he loved me! There was nothing left for me to do, but to receive his death in my place. One day I will stand confidently before God with the blood of Jesus as my pass into heaven. For all eternity I will sing the praises of my wonderful Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, for my salvation is in HIM, and not of works, lest any man should boast. What a wonderful salvation!!



    I hear the Savior say
    Thy strength indeed is small
    Child of weakness....watch and pray
    Find in me....thine all in all

    Chorus:
    Jesus paid it all
    All to Him I owe
    Sin hath 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

    And when before thy throne
    I stand in Him complete
    "Jesus died my soul to save,"
    My lips shall still repeat.



For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:16-18

  2. I love this hymn too!


    This week in school we are singing, "When We All Get to Heaven". I LOVE hymns, but some in particular bring me back to when I was young and I can picture so clearly standing next to my daddy in church, and I can hear him singing. This is one of those hymns. I was really choaking back the tears (not very well) as we sang and afterwards, I just broke down and bawled. I don't know how I'm going to make it through the week at this rate. Looking forward to that glorious Day.
