Redemption! oh, wonderful story –
Glad message for you and for me;
That Jesus has purchased our pardon,
And paid all the debt on the tree.
Believe it, O sinner, believe it;
Receive the glad message -’tis true;
Trust now in the crucified Savior,
Salvation He offers to you.
From death unto life He has brought us,
And made us by grace sons of God;
A fountain is opened for sinners;
Oh, wash and be cleansed in the blood!
No longer shall sin have dominion,
Though present to tempt and annoy;
For Christ, in His blessed redemption,
The power of sin shall destroy.
Accept now God’s offer of mercy;
To Jesus, oh hasten today;
For He will receive him that cometh,
And never will turn him away.
