God’s Cleansing Work

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.
