Of Snowflakes and Grace





It is assuredly so
In shades of virgin snow
Our scarlet robes of sin are cleansed
In love’s redeeming flow

Ah grace, how can this be?
That One should so love me
The Son of God, by His own blood
Washes our sin-stains clean

It is most surely so
Thus, by His grace I go
Our ruddy guilt by Lamb’s blood spilt
Is washed as white as snow

The stark and pleading landscape is covered in a blanket of spotless snow...

That's what God's promise is for us... "Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
