Would you know why Christ, my Sav­ior,
Is my constant theme and song?
Why to seek His loving favor
Is my joy the whole day long?


He redeemed me, He redeemed me,
How the ransomed choir
Repeat it o’er and o’er!
He redeemed me, He redeemed me,
Glory, glo­ry be to Him for­ev­er­more.

Oh, the days are full of gladness
That I spend in His employ;
I can banish care and sadness
In that song of heav’nly joy.


Come, belovèd, bow before Him,
Seek the pardon of your king,
That on earth you may adore Him,
And with saints in glo­ry sing.
