32. Redeemed, Restored, Forgiven

1 Redeemed, restored, forgiven,
Thro' Jesus’ precious blood,
Heirs of His home in heaven,
Oh, praise our pard'ning God!
Praise Him in tuneful measures
Who gave His Son to die;
Praise Him whose sev'nfold treasures
Enrich and sanctify.

2 Once on the dreary mountain
We wandered far and wide,
Far from the cleansing fountain,
Far from the pierced side;
But Jesus sought and found us
And washed our guilt away;
With cords of love He bound us
To be His own for aye.

3 Dear Master, Thine the glory
Of each recovered soul.
Ah! who can tell the story
Of love that made us whole?
Not ours, not ours the merit;
Be Thine alone the praise,
And ours a thankful spirit
To serve Thee all our days.

4 Now keep us, Holy Savior,
In Thy true love and fear
And grant us of Thy favor
The grace to persevere
Till, in Thy new creation,
Earth’s time-long travail o’er,
We find our full salvation,
And praise Thee evermore.

Amen.
