In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: I Lay My Sins on Jesus


I Lay My Sins on Jesus

The Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53:6

image

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, Till not a spot remains.

I lay my wants on Jesus—All fulness 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.

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.

The tune in this hymnal, and the one to which I am accustomed, is Crucifix. I couldn’t find a video of that tune, so this will have to do:
