Words by Elvina M. Hall
Tune: I HEAR THE SAVIOR SAY by Elvina M. Hall
Key signature: E flat major (3 flats)
1. [E♭]I [E♭]hear the Savior say,
“Thy [B♭]strength indeed is [E♭]small;
Child of [E♭]weakness,
watch and [E♭]pray,
Find in [E♭/B♭]Me thine
[B♭7]all in [E♭]all.”
Refrain: [E♭]Jesus paid it [E♭]all,
[E♭]All to Him I [B♭]owe;
[E♭]Sin had left a crimson [A♭]stain,
[A°]He [E♭/B♭]washed it
[B♭7]white as [E♭]snow.
1. I hear the Savior say, “Thy strength indeed is small; Child of weakness, watch and pray, Find in Me thine all in all.”
2. For nothing good have I Whereby Thy grace to claim; I’ll wash my garments white In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.
3. And now complete in Him, My robe, His righteousness, Close sheltered ‘neath His side, I am divinely blest.
4. Lord, now indeed I find Thy pow’r, and Thine alone, Can change the leopard’s spots And melt the heart of stone.
5. And when before the throne I stand in Him complete, “Jesus died my soul to save,” My lips shall still repeat.
Refrain: Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.
