1 “Christ hath redeemed us;” sing the glad world!
Mercy’s sweet message be telling,
How thro’ the ransom made by His blood,
Christ now within us dwelling.
“Christ hath redeemed us;” Praise to His name!
Praise Him, ye angels in glory;
“Christ hath redeemed us,” bearing our shame;
Tell out the wonderful story.
2 “Christ hath redeemed us,” making us free,
Free from the sins that enslave us;
Never in bondage more can we be,
Trusting in Him who hath saved us. [Refrain]
3 “Christ hath redeemed us;” we are His own,
Purchased by blood; He will hold us;
Nor will He ever leave us alone,
Safely His arms shall enfold us. [Refrain]
4 “Christ hath redeemed us;” soon with the throng
Gathered in glory we’ll meet Him;
O with what rapture join in the song,
When face to face we shall greet Him. [Refrain]Source: Sacred Songs No. 1: compiled and arranged for use in gospel meetings, Sunday schools, prayer meetings and other religious services #60
