1 We praise the Lord whose life was giv’n
To set the whole world free
From sin, its pow’r, and all its guilt,
On blood-stained Calvary.

Oh, praise the Lord, ye ransomed ones,
From sin and death set free;
And may His worthy praise resound
Thro’ all eternity.

2 We praise the Lord whose blood did flow
An efficacious stream;
From His dear side it issued forth
In power to redeem. [Refrain]

3 We praise the Lord for tasting death,
And suff’ring ev’ry pain
From cruel spear and crown of thorns,
That we with Him might reign. [Refrain]

4 We praise the Lord! Oh, dying Lamb!
For us the chast’ning rod
Thyself didst bear, to bring us back
In fellowship with God. [Refrain]
