Representative Text

1 I’ll sing my dear Redeemer’s praise,
“Rejoice with me” today,
For Jesus smiled upon my soul,
And took my sins away.

Refrain:
Oh, glory to His name
And His wondrous love proclaim,
I’ll shout His praise on high;
I’ll sing redeeming love
To the shining hosts above,
And behold His face in glory by and by.

2 I heard a voice that filled the night
With music pure and sweet,
I felt a touch that healed my wounds,
And drew me to His feet. [Refrain]

3 He led me to His pastures green,
Where streams of mercy flow,
And taught my heart the happy song
None but His ransomed know. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sweeter yet that song shall rise,
Until His face I see,
And tell the wond’ring angels ‘round,
That Jesus died for me. [Refrain]
