“Scarlett Ribbons” by Barbara Janis

Scarlet ribbons encircle me,

Tie me close yet set me free,

Scarlet ribbons, around my soul,     

Release my sin yet gently hold,

Scarlet ribbons, with a loving touch,

Cleanse and heal and mean so much!

Scarlet ribbons, by JESUS shed,

To purchase me He freely bled.

Scarlet ribbons that tie you and me, 

Tethered to CHRIST but Finally free,

Scarlet ribbons of perfect love,

Unite our souls to God above!
