Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 'Tis a wonderful song which my soul now sings,
Redeemed, redeemed;
There’s naught in this world such sweet peace can bring,
Redeemed, redeemed;
I’ll tell the glad story where’er I go,
Redeemed, redeemed;
That others may share all the blessing I know,
Since I’ve been redeemed.

A wonderful song, A wonderful song,
‘Tis a wonderful song which my soul now sings,
Redeemed, redeemed.

2 There’s a joy that’s unspeakable in my soul,
Redeemed, redeemed;
Since Jesus has cleansed and made me whole,
Redeemed, redeemed;
His presence is with me each day and hour,
Redeemed, redeemed;
I’m saved and I’m kept by His wonderful pow’r,
Since I’ve been redeemed. [Refrain]

3 All the angels will listen as I shall sing,
Redeemed, redeemed;
When radiant I stand near my Lord and King,
Redeemed, redeemed;
I’ll tell how He saved me and set me free,
Redeemed, redeemed;
His follower now and forever to be,
Since I’ve been redeemed. [Refrain]
