(Oh happy day)
Oh, yeah (Oh happy day)
Oh, what a beautiful
Oh happy day
(Unintelligible line)
Oh happy day)
He washed my sins away (Oh happy day)

Jesus washed (My Jesus washed)
Jesus washed (My Jesus washed)
I know he really washed (My Jesus washed)
My sins away (Oh happy day)
Yes, he did (Oh happy day)

He lift me up (Oh happy day)
Stood me on my feet (Oh happy day)
Know what that happens
When he got me out of the streets (Oh happy day)

My Jesus washed (My Jesus washed)
My Jesus washed (My Jesus washed)
I know he washed (My Jesus washed)
My sins away (Oh happy day)

Now listen to me (Oh happy day)
You can talk about me (Oh happy day)
As much as you please (Oh happy day)
The more you talk (Oh happy day)
I’m gonna bend my knees (Oh happy day)

I’m gonna pray to my Jesus (Oh happy day)
To help poor me (Oh happy day)
I’m gonna tell him (Oh happy day)
Everything is free (Oh happy day)
God set me free (Oh happy day)
Oh, he really really do (Oh happy day)
Darlin’, he washed (Oh happy day)
Ah, down that wall (Oh happy day)

If you bend your knees
Pray to Jesus
Lord, he will help you
Get out of that ol’ ghetto
I know you really really washed
Lord, I know you washed
Jesus really really washed
My sins away

Well, have a happy, happy day
Oh, happy day
Ain’t that a beautiful day
Lordy Lordly Lordy (Oh happy day)
Lordy Lordy Lordy (Oh happy day)
Aint that a beautiful day (Oh happy day)
I’m so happy he washed (Oh happy day)
God I’m so happy he washed my sins (Oh happy day)
I’m so glad he washed my hands (Oh happy day)
And freed me from sin (Oh happy day)
That man always helped me (Oh happy day)
Everything that I ever would
(Oh happy day)
Ain’t that a beautiful day
(Oh happy day)
Lord, he really really washed

    My OpinionYes, below are the CORRECT lyrics. The poor woman was disrespected in life (underpaid, not paid, etc), so why her "people" have copyrighted incorrect lyrics is beyond me. Man, the woman has EARNED our respect...and the right to have the correct lyrics posted. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (Yes, that's a scowling growl....try sayin' THAT fast 3x...ok, 6x then)

    That's the best I can do. It's a very special gospel song. Please check it out via Youtube. The song depicts the heart and soul of this wonderful musician.

    General CommentThis is my favorite of BMT's songs, but what I am most proud about is that I listened to this song (many times) and typed out the correct lyrics. I never thought I would care about such a feat (and it wasn't done for any glory), but the fact that BMT's lyrics (the correct lyrics) were nowhere on the Internet...but are now...still blows my mind. I suppose when you are a huge fan of an artist who was often disrespected in life, it should matter. How I wish I could have heard this woman sing in person! This song is so special; it's a gospel song that simply praises God and all His grace. Just love it!
