Representative Text

1 O Joy of the justified, joy of the free,
I’m washed in that crimson tide opened for me;
In Christ, my Redeemer, rejoicing I stand,
And point to the print of the nails in His hand.

O sing of His mighty love,
Sing of His mighty love!
Sing of His mighty love,
Mighty to save!

2 O Jesus the Crucified, Jesus mine:
Tho’ once a lost sinner, yet now I am Thine;
In conscious salvation I sing of His grace,
Who lifts now upon me the smile of His face. [Refrain]

3 Lord Jesus, my Savior, I’ll still sing of Thee,
Yes, sing of Thy precious blood poured out for me;
And when in the mansions of glory above,
I’ll praise and adore Thine unchangeable love. [Refrain]
