Redemption Song Lyrics

A sinner though I am, of darkest, deepest shade,
A righteousness I claim, my own thro' Jesus made.
Unnumbered worlds would not atone,
But Jesus bore my sins alone,
But Jesus bore my sins alone.

Refrain

Saved, O yes, I'm saved,
Saved, O yes, I'm saved;
Thro' Jesus' blood and righteousness,
I now am saved:
Saved, O yes, I'm saved,
Saved, O yes, I'm saved;
Thro' Jesus' blood and righteousness,
I now am saved.

This love ineffable my heart hath prepossessed,
And filled my fervid soul with wonder unexpressed;
For thought or word seeks but in vain
The holy mystery to explain,
The holy mystery to explain.

Refrain

Well might seraphic tongues be mute, with sacred awe;
And Heav'n's sublimest songs suspend, while angels saw
A glimpse of what could not be told,
Nor can eternity unfold,
Nor can eternity unfold.

Refrain

Heav'n's unexampled love to man, in Christ displayed,
Shall endless wonder prove, unfathomed, unportrayed.
Eternal love! the Offended dies
To bring the offender to the skies,
To bring the offender to the skies.

Refrain
