Representative Text

1 Come sing, my soul, and praise the Lord,
who hath redeemed thee by His blood;
Delivered thee from chains that bound,
And brought thee to redemption ground.

Refrain:
Redemption ground, the ground of peace!
Redemption ground, O wondrous grace!
Here let our praise to God abound!
Who saves us on redemption ground.

2 Once from my God I wandered far,
And with His holy will made war;
But now my songs to God abound;
I’m standing on redemption ground. [Refrain]

3 O joyous hour! when God to me
A vision gave of Calvary;
My bonds were loos'd—my soul unbound,
I sang upon redemption ground. [Refrain]

4 No works of merit now I plead,
But Jesus take, for all my need;
No righteousness in me is found,
Except upon redemption ground. [Refrain]

5 Come, weary soul, and here find rest;
Accept redemption, and be blest:
The Christ who died, by God is crowned
To pardon on redemption ground. [Refrain]
