Song Description

Hopeful prayer with confidence in God's loving forgiveness, no matter how many times we return to doing things we "know we shouldn't do." God always welcomes us home and washes us clean.

Story Behind the Song

Taken from "He shall come to us as the rain; like the spring rain." Hosea 6: 3-6

Lyrics

WASH AWAY

Carlene Thissen and Martha Christian, Copyright 2014

VERSE 1:

When weakness overcomes my goodness
And sorrow is a black dress that I wear
I turn to You for forgiveness
Amazed every time that You're still there

Chorus:
Wash away, wash away my tears, Like the spring rain
Wash away, wash away my fears, Like the spring rain

Verse 2:

Through my own faults and selfish ways
I keep doing things I know I shouldn't do.
'Til I'm not sure who I am some days.
Still You smile, and call me back to You.

Chorus
Wash away, wash away my tears, Like the spring rain
Wash away, wash away my fears, Like the spring rain

Bridge:
Cover all of me, every sin, every sin,
Remind me that I cannot go back to where I've been

Chorus
Wash away, wash away my tears, Like the spring rain
Wash away, wash away my fears, Like the spring rain
