388. Redeemed, Restored, Forgiven

1 Redeemed, restored, forgiven
Through 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;
Our many sins he bore.
With cords of love he bound us
To him forevermore.

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

4 Now keep us, holy Savior,
In your true love and fear,
And grant us by your favor
The grace to persevere
Till, in your new creation,
Our earthly troubles o'er,
Heirs of your free salvation,
We praise you evermore.
