13. One Soul Redeemed

1 One life reclaimed from death and sin,
Thro’ heav’n the tidings roll;
Glad voices shout their jubilee
O’er one more ransomed soul.

“One soul redeemed! one soul redeemed!”
O hear the angels sing;
Rejoice! rejoice! ye heav’nly hosts,
All glory to our King!

2 Were all the sweetest songs of earth
In one rich flood outpoured,
Yet grander far the angels’ song
O’er one more soul restored. [Refrain]

3 It echoes thro’ the golden streets,
It rings from tow’r and dome;
That song the angels love to sing
O’er wand’rers welcomed home. [Refrain]

4 Now thro’ the open city gates
We hear the harps resound,
And sweet and clear the chorus swells,
“A soul once lost is found.” [Refrain]
