Representative Text

1 There is hope, O troubled soul, despairing,
‘Neath sin’s dreadful burden bending low;
There for you is full and free redemption,
Jesus paid your ransom long ago.

Jesus paid your ransom long ago,
Long ago; long ago;
Dying on the cross of shame and woe;
Long ago, long ago.

2 If you will but come in true repentance,
And in Jesus with the heart believe,
God will freely pardon your transgressions
And with open arms He will receive. [Refrain]

3 Naught where with to purchase life eternal
Can the golden stores of earth afford;
‘Tis the priceless gift of God the Father,
Gift of love through Jesus Christ our Lord. [Refrain]

4 Will you not accept the gracious pardon
That for you has been so dearly won,
Pardon that was purchased with the life-blood
Of the Father’s own beloved Son. [Refrain]
