Representative Text

1 Redeemed! redeemed! O precious thought!
My Saviour hath redemption brought;
From Satan and his bondage free,
I am, for Christ hath ransomed me.

Redeemed! redeemed! I’ve been redeemed!
Thro’ Jesus’ blood I’ve been redeemed!
Yes! by His death on Calvary
I’ve been redeemed and now I’m free!

2 Redeemed, redeemed, the Saviour reigns
My fetter gone, no more in chains;
Exultingly His praise I sing,
And to His cross in hope I’ll cling. [Chorus]

3 Redeemed, redeemed, ye blood-washed throng!
The wondrous strains to you belong;
Strike all your harps, the chorus raise,
The Saviour claims your noblest praise. [Chorus]
