“ Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe, my sin had left a crimson stain, but He washed it white as snow.”
You’ve probably heard the worship song “Jesus Paid It All.” Traditionally a hymn, worship artist, Kristian Stanfill recreated it in the early 2000’s with a more contemporary spin. It’s probably one of my favorite worship songs of all time.
There’s something SO beautiful and pure about the simplicity and the intentionality of old-school hymns. And then the contemporary addition Stanfill put on the song is just this added layer of power that truly makes you want to lift your hands in praise to the Lord.
“Oh praise the one who paid my debt, and raised this life up from the dead…”
Y’all, my heart wants to jump out of my chest just writing those words.
We serve an INDESCRIBABLE God, who TRULY loves us so well. And while worship songs and old-school hymns are foundational in giving God all the glory, it’s scripture that truly reminds us of the fact that Jesus paid it all.
