Representative Text

1 Soul, redeem’d by Love Divine,
Knowest thou that thou art Mine?
Hast thou yielded utterly
All thou hast and art to Me?

2 Once thy heart was dark and cold,
‘Neath transgressions manifold;
Once thou did’st not love Me, yet
“I forgave thee all that debt.”

3 Yea, I bought thee with My blood,
And I led thee home to God;
Loved thee, loos’d thee, set thee free
By My death on Calvary.

4 Rose to claim at God’s right hand
Room for all My ransomed band;
Though for thee is all My heaven,
All to Me thou hast not given.

5 Child! redeemed by Love Divine,
Wilt thou not be wholly Mine?
Yield, oh yield thee utterly
Now, and evermore to Me!
