Lyrics

What a change has now come o’er me
Since I’ve been redeemed;
Brighter grows the way before me
Since I’ve been redeemed.

Refrain

I am redeemed, I am redeemed,
For the blood of Christ my Savior
Hath redeemèd me;
I am redeemed, I am redeemed,
For the blood of Christ my Savior
Hath redeemèd me!

Sin has told a dreadful story,
But I’ve been redeemed;
Now my soul is filled with glory,
For I’ve been redeemed.

Refrain

Now I love the Lord’s appearing,
For I’ve been redeemed;
And this hope my heart is cheering,
Since I’ve been redeemed.

Refrain

When the voice of God shall summon
All nations in a day,
May we be among the number
That to Him will say:
