Verse 1
Once I fought to conquer sin,
While it reigned my soul within;
Till my Saviour came one day;
Then He triumphed over all,
When He heard my pleading call,
And He took my sins away

Chorus
He took my sins away,
Took them all away,
Christ the Saviour took my sins away,
Contentment fills my soul,
His spirit has control,
Since Jesus took my sins away

Verse 2
O the wonder working pow'r,
In that happy, blessed hour
When my Saviour spoke to me,
And I heard the precious word
From this wonder working Lord,
When from sin He set me free

Chorus
He took my sins away,
Took them all away,
Christ the Saviour took my sins away,
Contentment fills my soul,
His spirit has control,
Since Jesus took my sins away

Verse 3
Are you struggling for the right,
Jesus has the power and might;
He will help you conquer sin;
He will take its pow'r away,
He will come with you to stay
And He will give you peace within

Chorus
He took my sins away,
Took them all away,
Christ the Saviour took my sins away,
Contentment fills my soul,
His spirit has control,
Since Jesus took my sins away
