1 My soul rejoicing fain would raise
A strain like that above,
And sing in grateful harmonies
Of God’s redeeming love.
Redeeming love! Redeeming love!
A story never old;
Still sweeter as the years go by,
Still bright as burnished gold.
2 When darkly bend the clouds of life,
And loud its tempests roll,
How like a benediction calm
Thy power upon my soul. [Refrain]
3 Redeeming love! Thou blest refrain!
Let mortal music cease
While angels o’er the list’ning earth
Prolong thy notes of peace. [Refrain]Source: The Great Awakening: a choice collection of new and standard gospel songs #91
