When I With Sin Was All Defiled


When I with sin was all defiled,
And sinking down in woe,
The blessed Saviour on me smiled,
And washed me white as snow.

Refrain:
Oh, plunge beneath the crimson flood,
And wash thy sins away;
For thee the Saviour shed His blood-
He’ll save, He’ll save today.

The joy the bliss of that glad hour,
No mortal tongue can tell,
When Jesus by His mighty power,
Saved my poor soul from hell. [Refrain]

By faith I tremblingly drew near,
And did my guilt confess;
He saw the penetential tear,
And deigned my soul to bless. [Refrain]

Dear sinner, hear the Saviour say,
In tones forever blest:
“I am the Life, the Truth, the Way!
In me ye shall find rest.” [Refrain]
