Representative Text

1 Ye ransom'd sinners, hear,
The pris'ners of the Lord;
And wait till Christ appear,
According to his word:
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me;
We shall from all our sins be free.

2 In God we put our trust;
If we our sins confess,
Faithful is he and just
From all unrighteousness
To cleanse us all, both you and me:
We shall from all our sins be free.

3 Surely in us the hope
Of glory shall appear:
Sinners your heads lift up,
And see redemption near:
Again I say, rejoice with me;
We shall from all our sins be free.

4 Who Jesus' sufferings share,
My fellow-pris'ners now,
Ye soon the crown shall wear
On your triumphant brow:
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me;
We shall from all our sins be free.

5 The word of God is sure,
And never can remove;
We shall in heart be pure,
And perfected in love:
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me;
We shall from all our sins be free.
