Representative Text

1 “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so:”
Tell to the world if we’re saved;
Tell if the Saviour doth satisfy now
All that our spirit hath craved.

Are we saved? Wondrously saved?
Saved and redeemed? Then say so;
Are we saved? Blessedly saved,
Give God the glory, and say so!

2 “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so:”
Have we been cleansed from all sin?
Washed and made white thro’ the blood of the Lamb?
Have we the witness within?

Are we saved? Wondrously saved?
Saved and redeemed? Then say so;
Are we saved? Blessedly saved,
Give God the glory, and say so!

3 “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so:”
Have we the Comforter now?
Has he come into our hearts to abide?
Does he his comfort bestow?

Are we saved? Wondrously saved?
Saved and redeemed? Then say so;
Are we saved? Blessedly saved,
Give God the glory, and say so!

4 “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so:”
Have we the peace in our heart?
Peace like a river that constantly flows,
Gladness and joy to import?

I am saved! Wondrously saved!
Saved and redeemed; I say so!
I am saved! Blessedly saved,
Give God the glory, I say so!

William J. Kirkpatrick (b. Duncannon, PA, 1838; d. Philadelphia, PA, 1921) received his musical training from his father and several other private teachers. A carpenter by trade, he engaged in the furniture business from 1862 to 1878. He left that profession to dedicate his life to music, serving as music director at Grace Methodist Church in Philadelphia. Kirkpatrick compiled some one hundred gospel song collections; his first, Devotional Melodies (1859), was published when he was only twenty-one years old. Many of these collections were first published by the John Hood Company and later by Kirkpatrick's own Praise Publishing Company, both in Philadelphia. Bert Polman Go to person page >
