1 I’ve been redeemed thro’ Jesus’ precious blood,
My sinful soul is reconciled to God;
Washed white as snow, my thankful song I sing,
Giving all praise unto my Lord, my King.

I’ve been redeemed, all glory to his name!
Jesus has saved me thro’ his own wondrous grace;
Here I will sing, until the time shall come
When over yonder I’ll meet him face to face.

2 I’ve been redeemed! My soul shall mount above
Earth’s sinful life to dwell with him I love,
Who, by his death upon the cruel tree,
Purchased my pardon there and set me free. [Refrain]

3 I’ve been redeemed, and I shall see his face,
Singing the song, “He saved me by his grace.”
O blessed thought! For e’er with him to stay,
Ever with friends I love to dwell for aye. [Refrain]

4 I’ve been redeemed; I’m sure to reach that home
Jesus prepared, from thence no more to roam.
My ransomed soul shall rise on wings of love,
Seeking a home eternal, built above. [Refrain]
