CGS No.: 

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
