#112: Blessed Redeemer

Standard
(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

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.

CHORUS

Blessed Redeemer, precious Redeemer! 

Seems now I 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.

CHORUS

3

O how I love Him, Savior and Friend!

How can  my praises ever find end!

Thru years unnumbered on heaven’s shore,

My tongue shall praise Him forevermore.

CHORUS
