Representative Text

1 "Redeemed!" "redeemed!"
Oh, sing the joyful strain!
Give praise; give praise and glory to His name;
Who gave His blood our souls to save,
And purchased freedom for the slave!
And purchased freedom for the slave!

Refrain:
"Redeemed!" "redeemed!" from sin and all its woe!
"Redeemed!" "redeemed!" eternal life to know!
"Redeemed!" "redeemed!" by Jesus’ blood,
"Redeemed!" "redeemed!" Oh, praise the Lord!

2 "What grace!" "what grace!"
That He who calmed the wave,
Should stoop, my soul, my guilty soul to save!
That He the curse should bear for me,
A sinful wretch, His enemy!
A sinful wretch, His enemy! [Refrain]

3 "Redeemed!" "redeemed!"
The word has brought repose,
And joy, and joy, that each redeemed one knows,
Who sees his sins on Jesus laid,
And knows His blood the ransom paid,
And knows His blood the ransom paid. [Refrain]

4 "Redeemed!" "redeemed!"
O joy, that I should be
In Christ, in Christ, from sin forever free!
Forever free to praise His name,
Who bore for me the guilt and shame,
Who bore for me the guilt and shame. [Refrain]
