I Lay My Sins on Jesus

I.
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 stain remains.

II.
I lay my wants on Jesus;
All fullness dwells in Him;
He heals all my diseases,
He doth soul redeem:

I lay my griefs on Jesus,
My burdens and my cares;
He from them all releases,
He all my sorrows shares.

III.
I long to be like Jesus,
Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be with 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 angel’s song. Amen.
