Nothing to Pay

by Frances Rdiley Havergal

 

Nothing to pay! Ah, nothing to pay!

Never a word of excuse to say!

Year after year thou hast filled the score,

Owing thy Lord still more and more.

Hear the voice of Jesus say,

"Verily thou hast nothing to pay!

Ruined, lost art thou, and yet

I forgave thee all that debt."

 

Nothing to pay! the debt is so great;

What will you do with the awful weight?

How shall the way of escape be made?

Nothing to pay! yet it must be paid!

Hear the voice of Jesus say,

"Verily thou hast nothing to pay!

All has been put to My account,

I have paid the full amount."

 

Nothing to pay; yes, nothing to pay!

Jesus has cleared all the debt away;

Blotted it out with His bleeding hand!

Free and forgiven and loved you stand.

Hear the voice of Jesus say,

"Verily thou hast nothing to pay!

Paid is the debt, and the debtor free!

Now I ask thee, lovest thou Me?"
