1 Over my spirit, silently musing,
Came a sweet message, peaceful, divine;
Tranquilly stealing, slowly repeating,
I have redeem'd thee and thou art mine.

Thou hast redeemed me, wonderful Saviour,
Under Thy watch-care still would I be;
Tenderly fold me, lovingly hold me;
Hiding forever my soul in Thee.

2 Rich are the blessings Thou art bestowing,
Bountiful Shepherd, Saviour divine;
I shall not weary, walking beside Thee,
Thou hast redeem'd me, my life is Thine. [Refrain]

3 Green are the pastures, cool are the waters,
Where at the noontide oft I recline;
How shall I thank Thee, how shall I praise Thee?
Thou hast redeem'd me, my life is Thine. [Refrain]
