Monday Morning Melody

I think it is interesting how many times I’ll have a hymn in mind for Monday, and then we sing it in church on Sunday! Yesterday I was able to really focus, and enjoyed a sweet service with the Lord.

The words I found online differ from our hymnal, but that always fascinates me. Usually the best ones are the ones we sing, but sometimes there’s simply “too many” verses so a few are cut out or combined. I like the extra ones written by Elvina Hall (what a name!) in 1865, so I’m including them today.

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

Refrain:

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

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

And now complete in Him
My robe His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.

Refrain

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

Refrain

When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.

Refrain

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down
All down at Jesus’ feet.

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