This morning I woke to a freshly washed world;
I pondered- just what does this mean?
It pictured to me how God takes sinners’ hearts
And renews, makes them perfectly clean.
How great a Redeemer is needed for this-
Each day there’s a mountain of guilt!
Each day there is mercy abundant in scope;
On this promise my faith has been built.
I thank Thee, dear Father, that Thou in Thy grace
Looked down upon sinners and saw
Not our sins, but the blood of the sacrificed Lamb;
The fulfillment complete of the law.
Give me eyes, Lord, to see, and a heart to rejoice
In the beauty surrounding this earth,
Knowing this merely is a portrayal of all
That Thy work of salvation brings forth.
