Lyrics

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?

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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