Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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]
