Blessed Redeemer

Full Text

1 Up Calv’ry’s mountain, one dreadful morn,
Walked Christ my Savior, weary and worn;
Facing for sinners death on the cross,
That He might save them from endless loss.

Blessed Redeemer! Precious Redeemer!
Seems I now see Him on Calvary’s tree;
Wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading,
Blind and unheeding—dying for me!

2 “Father forgive them!” thus did He pray,
E’en while His lifeblood flowed fast away;
Praying for sinners while in such woe—
No one but Jesus ever loved so. [Refrain]

3 Oh, how I love Him, Savior and Friend,
How can my praises ever find end!
Through years unnumbered on heaven’s shore,
My tongue shall praise Him forevermore. [Refrain]

Timeless Truths

Author: Avis B. Christiansen

Avis B. Christiansen was born on Oc­to­ber 11, 1895 in Chi­ca­go, Il­li­nois and died on Jan­u­a­ry 14, 1985, in Chi­ca­go. Pseudonyms: Christian B. An­son Avis Bur­ges­son Constance B. Ried One Sunday morning in Moody Church, as she listened to a new song by Harry Loes, the Lord reminded her that the talent entrusted to her belonged to Him and she began to write hymns. In 1917, she married Ernest C. Christiansen, who later became vice president in charge of investments for the Moody Bible Institute. Even as a busy homemaker, she continued to write many hymns, and also published two books of poetry.  Go to person page >
