He Saw Me/Jesus Paid It All
by Bill Gaither



On a balcony of space stepped a pure and holy God
In awesome solitude He stood alone
Not one faint star to give Him light; just endless darkness, it was blackest night
But somehow in the darkness He could see

He saw mountains high and lofty, He saw valleys lush and green
He saw babbling brooks, and wildflowers grow, He even heard a robin sing
Then He felt a strange compassion, as close to love as pain could be
Standing out there in His tomorrow, He saw me!

He saw me, in His likeness, He saw me, just like Him
Pure, clean and holy, spotless, white within!
Then He saw me bound in heavy chains, and longed to set me free
But He knew if I became like Him, then He must become like me.

Jesus paid it all!
All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain;
He washed it white as snow!
