1 I will sing of my Redeemer,
Jesus, Lord, who died for me;
How he left the courts of glory,
Son of God, yet man to be,
Meek and lowly, condescending,
The Incarnate God!

Refrain:
Yes, I’ll praise my dear Redeemer,
For his wondrous love to me,
Love abounding, love excelling,
Paid my debt and set me free;
Hallelujah! I will praise him,
For he gave his life for me.

2 For my sins he paid the ransom,
Shed his blood upon the tree;
One the cruel cross suspended,
There he died in agony,
Crowned with thorns, mocked and derided,
Jesus crucified! [Refrain]

3 I will praise my ris’n Redeemer,
Christ, the resurrected Lord;
For he rose o’er death triumphant,
And fulfilled thus his word:
“Death and hell I came to conquer,”
Dear avenging Lord! [Refrain]

4 I will praise him up in glory,
Sing his dear, redeeming love;
And to angels tell his story
Of the Lamb who sits above,
All the shining hosts of heaven,
Jesus, glorified! [Refrain]
