1 I love to think of the ransom’d throng,
I love to think of the joyful song;
The song of praise in the courts above,
The wondrous song of redeeming love.

Refrain:
Saved thro’ the blood of the Lamb,
Saved thro’ the blood of the Lamb.
I love to think of the joyful song,
Saved, saved thro’ the blood of the Lamb.

2 I love to think of the martyrs grand
Who pass’d thro’ life to the promised land,
Now chanting praise to their Savior King;
O sweet indeed is the song they sing. [Refrain]

3 I love to think of the robe and crown,
Of those at home with the cross laid down
Before the throne of the great I Am,
With songs of praise to the blessed Lamb. [Refrain]

4 I love to think of that wondrous clime,
I love to think of the scene sublime,
Where thro’ the Lamb I may join that throng
And sing with them that triumphant song. [Refrain]
