1 God so loved the world of sinners,
That His only Son He gave;
Whosoe’er in Him believeth,
Everlasting life shall have.

Refrain:
Bright and glorious was the dawning
Of His love within my heart,
When I joined the ransomed army
And of Christ became a part;
When I joined the ransomed army,
And of Christ became a part.

2 He was bruised for my transgressions,
By His stripes my soul is healed;
And the gentle, loving Shepherd
In His blood my pardon sealed. [Refrain]

3 All my guilty past lies buried
In the deepest depths of sea;
God my sins no more remembers;
Christ, my king, hath made me free. [Refrain]

4 Fled our sighing, night and sorrow;
Joy and gladness now I know;
In my master’s name I triumph
O’er my soul’s most bitter foe. [Refrain]
