Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.16

First Line: Redemption ! oh, wonderful story

Redemption ! oh, wonderful story
Glad message for you and for me :
That Jesus has purchased our pardon,
And paid all the debt on the tree.
Believe it, O sinner,believe it;
Receive the glad message 'tis true;
Trust now in the crucified Saviour :
Salvation He offers to you.

2 From death unto life He hath broughtus,
And made us by grace sons of God ;
A fountain is opened for sinners :
Oh, wash and be cleansed in the blood !

3 No longer shall sin have dominion,
Though present to tempt and annoy ;
For Christ, in His blessed redemption,
The power of sin shall destroy.

4 Accept now God's offer of mercy ;
To Jesus, oh hasten to-day;
For He will receive him that cometh,
And never will turn him away.
