    Verse 1
    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

    Verse 2
    I lay my wants on JESUS;
    All fullness 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 sorrow shares

    Verse 3
    I rest my soul on JESUS,
    This weary soul of mine;
    His Right Hand me embraces,
    I on His Breast recline.
    I love the Name of JESUS,
    Immanuel, CHRIST, the LORD;
    Like fragrance on the breezes,
    His Name abroad is pour'd

    Verse 4
    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
