1 The joy I feel today
No mortal could have dreamed;
My heart is full of song,
My heart is full of song,
For I have been redeemed,
So wondrously redeemed.

Refrain:
Redeemed, redeemed,
Son wondrously redeemed,
Redeemed, redeemed,
So wondrously redeemed.

2 No more I serve the world;
How sweet its pleasures seemed!
I follow now my Lord,
I follow now my Lord,
By whom I am redeemed,
So wondrously redeemed. [Refrain]

3 Within my happy heart
The heav’nly light has beamed,
And I have wondrous love,
And I have wondrous love,
For I have been redeemed,
So wondrously redeemed. [Refrain]
