1 I will sing of my Redeemer
and his wondrous love to me;
on the cruel cross he suffered,
from the curse to set me free.
Sing, oh, sing of my Redeemer,
with his blood he purchased me;
on the cross he sealed my pardon,
paid the debt, and made me free.
2 I will tell the wondrous story
how, my lost estate to save,
in his boundless love and mercy
he the ransom freely gave. [Refrain]
3 I will praise my dear Redeemer,
his triumphant power I'll tell,
how the victory he giveth
over sin and death and hell. [Refrain]
4 I will sing of my Redeemer
and his heavenly love for me;
he from death to life has brought me,
Son of God, with him to be. [Refrain]
This great truth is explained more completely by Belgic Confession, Article 20. God has given his Son to die for us “…by a most perfect love, and raising him to life for our justification, in order that by him, we might have immortality and eternal life.” And in Article 21, “…He endured all this for the forgiveness of our sins.” For this redemptive work we give praise and adoration.
