1 There’s a sweet and blessed story
Of the Christ who came from glory
Just to rescue me from sin and misery;
He in loving-kindness sought me
And from sin and shame hath brought me -
Hallelujah! Jesus ransomed me.
Hallelujah! what a Savior
Who can take a poor, lost sinner,
Lift him from the miry clay and set me free!
I will ever tell the story,
Shouting, "Glory, glory, glory!"
Hallelujah! Jesus lifted me.
2 From the depth of sin and sadness
To the heights of joy and gladness
Jesus lifted me in mercy full and free;
With His precious blood He bought me,
When I knew Him not He sought me,
And in love divine He ransomed me. [Chorus]
3 By and by with joy increasing
And with gratitude unceasing,
Lifted up to be with Christ eternally,
I will join the hosts there singing,
In the anthem ever ringing,
To the King of Love who ransomed me. [Chorus]
