Hymn Study: Jesus Paid it All

For this month, we are learning the hymn, Jesus Paid it All. It was written by Elvina Hall with music by John Grape.

The music was written first and then the lyrics. John Grape has been reported as saying that when we originally wrote the music only his wife believed in it.

Here are the original lyrics:

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

Refrain (Played at the closing of each verse)
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.

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

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

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

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

Our hymnal only has 3 stanzas. And we chose to sing along with this song...And it includes 3 of the stanzas above.
