Blessed Redeemer

E                                   B
Up Calvary’s mountain, one dreadful morn,
Walked Christ my Saviour, weary and worn;
Facing for sinners death on the cross,
              E         B7           E
That He might save them from endless loss.


A                          E
Blessed Redeemer! Precious Redeemer!
            B                    B7
Seems I now see Him on Calvary’s tree;
E                                 A
Wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading,
            E       E7        E
Blind and unheeding—dying for me!

“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.


O how I love Him, Saviour and Friend,
How can my praises ever find end!
Through years unnumbered on heaven’s shore,
My tongue shall praise Him forevermore.
