Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

I am ransomed by the blood

Representative Text

1 I am ransomed by the blood my Redeemer shed for me,
When he bore my guilt and sin in his body on the tree;
I am ransomed by the blood that for all is flowing free,
Praise the Lord for a full salvation!

Glory to Jesus! his mercy I adore;
Glory to Jesus! who saves me evermore;
I will sing it till I die, then proclaim it thro’ the sky,
Praise the Lord for a full salvation!

2 On a fearful brink I stood,—ev’ry earthly hope had fled,—
Then I heard a gentle voice; oh how lovingly it said,
“I was wounded for thy sake, and for thee my blood I shed;”
Praise the Lord for a full salvation! [Refrain]

3 With a faltering step I came, for my heart was sore oppressed,
Now I walk with him by faith, leaning sweetly on his breast;
Ev’ry doubt is swept away,—I enjoy a perfect rest,—
Praise the Lord for a full salvation! [Refrain]

4 Mourning soul, whoe’er thou art, he is speaking now to thee,
Do not lose another hour,—to the precious fountain flee,—
Lay thy burden at the cross; come, oh, come, rejoice with me,
Praise the Lord for a full salvation! [Refrain]
