Lyrics

I am redeemed, O praise the Lord;
My soul from bondage free,
Has found at last a resting place
In Him who died for me.

Refrain

I am redeemed, I am redeemed,
I’ll sing it o’er and o’er;
I am redeemed, O praise the Lord;
Redeemed forevermore.

I looked, and lo! from Calvary’s cross
A healing fountain streamed;
It cleansed my heart, and now I sing,
Praise God, I am redeemed.

Refrain

The debt is paid, my soul is free,
And by His mighty power,
The blood that washed my sins away
Still cleanseth every hour.

Refrain

All glory be to Jesus’ name;
I know that He is mine,
For on my heart the Spirit seals
His pledge of love divine.
