All My Sins Have Been Forgiven

Full Text

1 All my sins have been forgiven;
God is merciful to me;
Faith has claimed the Savior's promise,
Grace and pardon, full and free;
O my soul, be ever praising
For the great Redeemer's love;
Joyous songs to Him be raising,
Unto God in heav'n above.

2 My account is closed forever;
Jesus Christ has paid it all;
Shed His blood my sin to cover,
Paid the price to save my soul;
There is now no condemnat5ion,
I am fully reconciled;
What a wonderful salvation,
For a sinner so defiled!

3 How my countless sins depressed me,
Gave me sorrow, shame and tears,
How His wrath and anger crushed me,
Filled my heart with doubts and fears;
But my soul cried out in anguish,
Called for mercy and for grace,
Jesus heard my supplication,
Granted pardon and release.

4 Now my soul shall live forever;
No more can the Foe condemn;
Nothing from God's love can sever,
Peace and joy are found in Him.
Thus I journey on to heaven,
Cross death's portals joyfully;
All my sins have been forgiven,
God is merciful to me.
