1. Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption, Nor riches of earth could have saved my poor soul; The blood of the cross is my only foundation, The death of my Savior now maketh me whole.
Refrain: I am redeemed, but not with silver, I am bought, but not with gold; Bought with a price, the blood of Jesus, Precious price of love untold.
2. Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption, The guilt on my conscience too heavy had grown; The blood of the cross is my only foundation, The death of my Savior could only atone.
3. Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption, The holy commandment forbade me draw near; The blood of the cross is my only foundation, The death of my Savior removeth my fear.
4. Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption, The way into Heaven could not thus be bought; The blood of the cross is my only foundation, The death of my Savior redemption hath wrought.Nor Silver Nor Gold
