Red are the stains; my
soul is afraid.

Safe from the law that
now judgeth me!

pardon to know;
Jesus holds out a robe
white as snow;
Lord, I accept
it! Leaving my own,
Gladly I wear Thy pure
Reconciled by His
death for my sin,
Justified by His life
pure and clean,
Sanctified by obeying
returneth my Lord.
