I Know that My Redeemer Lives

I know that my Redeemer lives, for He hath made me free

Author: William Rhoda
Tune: [I know that my Redeemer lives] (Lowing)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 I know that my Redeemer lives,
For He hath made me free;
He made my stubborn heart rejoice,
And now the light I see.

Hallelujah, Jesus saves me,
Glory, glory to his name!
Victory is on my banner,
I will now his love proclaim.

2 I know that my Redeemer lives,
'Twas he who made me whole;
He turned my darkness into light,
And saved my trembling soul. [Chorus]

3 I know that my Redeemer lives,
Thank God, he lives today!
He lives to make his people free,
Oh, why will you delay? [Chorus]

4 I know that my Redeemer lives
In mansions bright and fair;
And when the hour of death shall come,
I know I'll meet him there. [Chorus]
