Hymn/Song Information

RANSOM




When upon my state I ponder,
Oh how dark am I within!
Satan easily ensnares me,
Works upon a heart unclean:
|: Kind Deliverer, :|
Thou alone canst free from sin.


Guilt I feel a heavy burden,
Sinful thoughts, alas, increase;
Can a rebel so unworthy,
Ever hope to dwell in peace:
|: Blessed Saviour, :|
Thou canst make my sorrows cease.


Come, my soul, forbear this mourning,
Banish unbelief and pride;
For thy hope thereís ground sufficient,
Jesus bowed his head and died:
|: As thy Ransom, :|
He was scourged and crucified.


Now before the great Eternal,
As thine advocate he stands;
having calmed the wrath vindictive,
Paid the debt the law demands:
|: Kindest Saviour, :|
This to free from Satanís bands.


To his cross Iíll fly believing,
Seek and find my refuge there;
On his promises relying,
I no more will yield to fear:
|: Blessed Ransom, :|
Thus to bring salvation near.
