I Will Sweep Away Your Transgressions

The author and composer of this hymn based on Isaiah 44:22 are unknown. One YouTube video says it is by Laure Salo, but no definitive sources have been found. It is particularly popular in Canada.




I will sweep away your transgressions like a cloud
And your sins will be to me like a mist dissolved
So return to me, I will heal you, for I love you.

If you say to me: "Father I am blind"
If you say to me "I can't see."
I will be your light,
I'll restore your sight,
Place all your darkness in me.

If you say to me "I'm in prison Lord
Imprisoned by my fears."
Then I'll come to you,
I will comfort you,
Let me wipe away your tears.

If you say to me, "I am lame and poor,
I need to be healed and set free,
I have sinned O Lord,
I am sorry Lord,
I need you to live in me."

  1. Hi. I can most definitely assure you this song is credited to Laure Salo. Our group wanted to use this hymn for a special occasion last fall and we eventually were able to track down Ms. Salo, who was very gracious is allowing it to be used. Copyright belongs to her.
