1 I know that my Redeemer lives,
and ever prays for me;
a token of his love he gives,
a pledge of liberty.
2 I find him lifting up my head;
he brings salvation near;
his presence makes me free indeed
and he will soon appear.
3 He wills that I should holy be:
who can withstand his will?
The counsel of his grace in me
he surely shall fulfil.
4 Jesus, I hang upon your Word:
I steadfastly believe
you will return and claim me, Lord,
and to yourself receive.

I know that my Redeemer lives, And ever prays for me. C. Wesley. [Rejoicing in hope.] Published in Hymns & Sacred Poems, 1742, p. 180, in 23 stanzas of 4 lines, and entitled, “Rejoicing in Hope." (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. ii. p. 242.) Two centos from this hymn, both beginning with stanza i., are in common use:—
1. In Toplady's Psalms & Hymns, Itt6, No. 290, in 8 stanzas. This is in use in the Church of England.
2. In the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, in 9 stanzas, No. 373 (ed. 1875, No. 384). This is the arrangement commonly found in the Methodist hymn-books (but sometimes abbreviated) in Great Britain and America. Stevenson has an interesting note on this cento in his Methodist Hymn Book Notes, 1883, p. 265.
