A Hymn by R.C. Sproul
Many know R.C. Sproul as a champion for Reformed Theology and Biblical Preaching. Not many know that he has written a few hymns in his day. I stumbled upon this hymn earlier today.
R. C. Sproul has written this beautiful hymn that you might consider using in your personal, family, or congregational worship:
Fallen race in Eden fair, exposed and full of shame. Fled we naked from Thy sight, far from Thy holy name.
Sent from the garden to the east, outside of Eden’s gate, Banished there from Thy pure light were Adam and his mate.
Scarlet souls are now like snow by Thy atoning grace. Crimson hearts become like wool for Adam’s fallen race.
No work of ours is good enough for evil to atone. Your merit, Lord, is all we have. It saves and it alone.
Clothe us in your righteousness, hide filthy rags of sin, Dress us in Your perfect garb, both outside and within.
The sheet music is available for purchase through Ligonier Ministries
