Scripture Verse

Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow. Isaiah 1:18


Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)

Words: El­vi­na M. Hall, 1865, & Fan­ny Cros­by, in Bright Jew­els, ed­it­ed by Ro­bert Low­ry (New York: Big­low & Main, 1869), page 139.

Music: John T. Grape, 1865, & Asa Hull, 1869 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The on­ly orig­in­al parts of this song are the three vers­es by Fan­ny Cros­by. The mu­sic is vir­tu­al­ly the same as Je­sus Paid it All, by El­vi­na Hall and John Grape, pub­lished in 1865. The words to the re­frain are iden­ti­cal in the two ver­sions. How­ev­er, Bright Jew­els cred­its on­ly Cros­by and Hull, not men­tion­ing Hall or Grape.

Asa Hull (1828–1907)


Redeeming work is done;
The debt of sin is paid;
The pre­cious Lamb of God,
My sac­ri­fice is made.


Jesus paid it all;
All to Him I owe!
Sin had left a crim­son stain;
He washed it white as snow.

I’ll bow at Je­sus’ feet,
And plead His grace so free;
I’ll wash me in His blood,
That blood was shed for me.


Yes, Je­sus paid it all,
To Him the glo­ry be;
His love my par­don speaks,
And grace has set me free.
