Cleansing For Me

1 John 1:9

 

 

Lord, through the blood of the Lamb that was slain,

Cleansing for me;

From all the guilt of my sins now I claim

Cleansing from Thee.

Sinful and black though the past may have been,

Many the crushing defeats I have seen,

Yet on Thy promise, O Lord, now I lean,

Cleansing for me.

 

From all the sins over which I have wept,

Cleansing for me;

Far, far away by the blood-current swept,

Cleansing for me.

Jesus, Thy promise I dare to believe,

And as I come Thou wilt surely receive,

That over sin I may never more grieve,

Cleansing for me.

 

From all the doubts that have filled me with gloom,

Cleansing for me;

From all the fears that would point me to doom,

Cleansing for me.

Jesus, although I may not understand,

In childlike faith now I stretch forth my hand,

And through Thy word and Thy grace I shall stand,

Cleansed by Thee.

 

From all the care of what men think or say,

Cleansing for me;

From ever fearing to speak, sing or pray,

Cleansing for me.

Lord, in Thy love and Thy power make me strong

That all may know that to Thee I belong;

When I am tempted, let this be my song,

Cleansing for me.
