All Taken Away 
 
Words: Russell Kelso Carter
Music: Unknown 
 
Did you hear what Jesus said to me? 
They’re all taken away, away; 
Your sins are pardoned and you are free, 
They’re all taken away. 

Chorus:
They're all taken away, away, 
They're all taken away, away, 
They're all taken away, away, 
My sins are all taken away. 


Oh this wondrous grace so free and full, 
They’re all taken away, away; 
Though red like crimson they‘re now as wool, 
They’re all taken away. 

(Chorus)

I have plunged beneath the crimson tide, 
They’re all taken away, away; 
And now by faith I am purified, 
They’re all taken away. 

(Chorus)

Now the Spirit witnesses to me 
They’re all taken away, away; 
And keeps me standing in liberty, 
They’re all taken away. 

(Chorus)

So I praise the Lord for sins forgiven, 
They’re all taken away, away; 
While onward pressing my way to heaven, 
They’re all taken away. 

(Chorus)
