I will sing of my Redeemer And His wondrous love to me; On the cruel cross He suffered, From the curse to set me free.Refrain: Sing O sing of my Redeemer, With His blood He purchased me; On the cross He sealed my pardon, Paid the debt, and made me free.2. I will tell the wondrous story, How my lost estate to save, In His boundless love and mercy, He the ransom freely gave.3. I will praise my dear Redeemer, His triumphant pow’r I’ll tell, How the victory He giveth Over sin, and death, and hell.4. I will sing of my Redeemer, And His heav’nly love to me; He from death to life hath brought me, Son of God with Him to be.
