232. I Hear the Savior Say

1 I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small,
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

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

2 Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone. (Refrain)

3 For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim--
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb. (Refrain)

4 And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
"Jesus died my soul to save,"
My lips shall still repeat. (Refrain)
