Redeemed, How I Love to Proclaim it!

Hymn lyrics by Fanny Crosby,
Music by William J. Kirkpatrick
Verse 1
  • Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!
  • Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
  • Redeemed through His infinite mercy,
  • His child and forever I am.
  • Redeemed, redeemed,
  • Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
  • Redeemed, redeemed,
  • His child and forever I am.
Verse 2
  • Redeemed, and so happy in Jesus,
  • No language my rapture can tell;
  • I know that the light of His presence
  • With me doth continually dwell.
Verse 3
  • I think of my blessed Redeemer,
  • I think of Him all the day long:
  • I sing, for I cannot be silent;
  • His love is the theme of my song.
Verse 41
  • I know there’s a crown that is waiting,
  • In yonder bright mansion for me,
  • And soon, with the spirits made perfect,
  • At home with the Lord I shall be.
Verse 52
  • I know I shall see in His beauty
  • The King in whose law I delight,
  • Who lovingly guardeth my footsteps,
  • And giveth me songs in the night.
