Lyrics

There’s a ransom paid to purchase me,
By the Lord who died on Calvary;
Yes! from every chain I am set free!
I am ransomed and redeemed!

Refrain

Ransomed and redeemed!
Ransomed and redeemed!
By the precious blood of Jesus who was slain,
I’m ransomed and redeemed!

By His death I mercy now have found,
And my praise shall thro’ the earth resound;
I will spread the joyful news around!
I am ransomed and redeemed!

Refrain

Hallelujah! Jesus is my king!
Come and learn the song which now I sing;
While I’m resting sweetly ’neath His wing,
I am ransomed and redeemed!

Refrain

Heav’nly glory fills my soul today,
It has come there evermore to stay;
This my song shall be along the way,
I am ransomed and redeemed!
