Jesus, sweet Jesus
You love me just as I am
Jesus, sweet Jesus
I've been washed in the blood of the land

The church wants to hear my confession
It's something they all want to see
Ah but Lord, I'm only a sinner (just a sinner)
And my sin is all that I can be

Jesus, sweet Jesus
You love me just as I am
Jesus, sweet Jesus
I've been washed in the blood of the land

As a boy, I was always afraid to go down at alter call and kneel down
And over the years I wondered, was my soul saved or was it lost?
Then I realized salvation was all the grace of Jesus
And we'd been saved just the way he saved that thief on the cross

Jesus, sweet Jesus
You love me just as I am
Jesus, sweet Jesus
I've been washed in the blood of the land (it's true)
Jesus, sweet Jesus
