1 Redeemed and saved! For me the Saviour suffered, Laid down His life, a ransom for my own; Took on Himself my load of condemnation, And tread the cruel wine-press all alone. Refrain: Redeemed! redeemed! my grateful heart keeps singing, Redeemed and saved! How wonderful it seems! My sin is gone, I am an heir of glory, O bliss indeed, beyond my brightest dreams! 2 Redeemed and saved! Oh! rapturous was the moment, When, in despair, I found His pardon free; When first I knew the Son of God, in dying, Had died for me, had died for even me. [Refrain] 3 Redeemed and saved! No more a wand’ring alien, No more the guilt, the fears I felt before; But now a peace and joy that never faileth; Since I am His, yes, His forevermore! [Refrain]
Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
