Representative Text

1 My sins are all forgiven, I’m on the heavenward way,
My heart for joy is singing, I’m happy all the day;
Though once in condemnation, His saving power I know,
For Jesus paid my ransom, long, long ago.

Refrain:
Long, long ago, because He loved me so,
His life He gave my soul to save, well, well I know;
Long, long ago, because He loved me so,
For Jesus paid my ransom, long, long ago.

2 My guilty stains are hidden beneath the crimson flood,
He washed me pure and spotless with His own precious blood;
His heart for me was broken, my pardon to bestow,
For Jesus paid my ransom, long, long ago. [Refrain]

3 When at the final judgment, my waiting soul shall stand,
For deeds done in the body, to meet the law’s demand;
Upon the page of records there’ll be no debt I owe,
For Jesus paid my ransom, long, long ago. [Refrain]
