Redeemed, and with the price of blood,
Which Thou hast shed for me,
I stand, a mo­nu­ment of grace,
A wit­ness, Lord, for Thee.


Redeemed, and made by sim­ple faith
An heir of Hea­ven above!
Oh, love sur­pass­ing hu­man thought!
Oh, vast, un­mea­sured love!

Redeemed, no long­er dead in sin,
But raised by pow’r di­vine,
My tongue, re­joic­ing, cries aloud,
All glo­ry, Lord, be Thine.


Redeemed, my heart is filled with praise,
My soul true com­fort knows,
And dai­ly feels the calm of peace
That like a ri­ver flows.


Redeemed, I’ll tell it o’er and o’er;
Redeemed my song shall be,
My watch­word through the vale of death,
My pass­port home to Thee.
