My Redeemer

Written by Philip P. Bliss
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.
I will tell the wondrous story,How my lost estate to save,In His boundless love and mercy,He the ransom freely gave.

I will praise my dear Redeemer,His triumphant power I’ll tell,How the victory He givethOver sin, and death, and hell.

I will sing of my Redeemer,And His heav’nly love to me;He from death to life hath brought me,Son of God with Him to be.
The writer of this song was killed trying to save his wife after they had both been in a train wreck. The lyrics to this song were found in his belongings that were with him.
