I Lay My Sins on Jesus

  1. I lay my sins on Jesus,
    the spotless Lamb of God;
    he bears them all, and frees us
    from the accursed load:
    I bring my guilt to Jesus,
    to wash my crimson stains
    white in his blood most precious,
    ’til not a spot remains.
  2. I lay my wants on Jesus;
    all fullness dwells in him;
    he heals all my diseases,
    he doth my soul redeem:
    I lay my griefs on Jesus,
    my burdens and my cares;
    he from them all releases,
    he all my sorrows shares.
  3. I rest my soul on Jesus,
    this weary soul of mine;
    his right hand me embraces,
    I on his breast recline.
    I love the name of Jesus,
    Immanuel, Christ, the Lord;
    like fragrance on the breezes
    his name abroad is poured.
  4. I long to be like Jesus,
    meek, loving, lowly, mild;
    I long to be like Jesus,
    the Father’s holy child:
    I long to be with Jesus
    amid the heav’nly throng,
    to sing with saints his praises,
    to learn the angels’ song.
