I am Redeemed Lyrics

I am redeemed, O praise the Lord;
My soul from bondage free,
Has found at last a resting place
In Him who died for me.


I am redeemed, I am redeemed,
I'll sing it o'er and o'er;
I am redeemed, O praise the Lord;
Redeemed forevermore.

I looked, and lo! from Calvary's cross
A healing fountain streamed;
It cleansed my heart, and now I sing,
Praise God, I am redeemed.


The debt is paid, my soul is free,
And by His mighty power,
The blood that washed my sins away
Still cleanseth every hour.


All glory be to Jesus' name;
I know that He is mine,
For on my heart the Spirit seals
His pledge of love divine.
