John R. Sweney (1837-1899)

Redeemed, and with the price of blood,
Which Thou hast shed for me,
I stand, a monument of grace,
A witness, Lord, for Thee.

Refrain

Redeemed, and made by simple faith
An heir of Heaven above!
Oh, love surpassing human thought!
Oh, vast, unmeasured love!

Redeemed, no longer dead in sin,
But raised by pow’r divine,
My tongue, rejoicing, cries aloud,
All glory, Lord, be Thine.

Refrain

Redeemed, my heart is filled with praise,
My soul true comfort knows,
And daily feels the calm of peace
That like a river flows.

Refrain

Redeemed, I’ll tell it o’er and o’er;
Redeemed my song shall be,
My watchword through the vale of death,
My passport home to Thee.

Refrain
