We praise the Lord whose life was giv’n,
To set the whole world free
From sin, its power, and all its guilt,
On blood stained Calvary.


Oh, praise the Lord, ye ransomed ones,
From sin and death set free;
And may His worthy praise resound
Thro’ all eternity!

We praise the Lord whose blood did flow,
An efficacious stream;
From His dear side it issued forth
In power to redeem.


We praise the Lord for tasting death,
And suffering every pain
From cruel spear and crown of thorn,
That we with Him might reign.


We praise the Lord! Oh, dying Lamb!
For us the chastening rod
Thyself didst bear, to bring us back
In fellowship with God.
