Nor Silver nor Gold
Words by James M. Gray
Music by Daniel B. Towner

1 Peter 1:18-19

            1. Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold,
              from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
            2. But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

divider

          Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption,
          Nor riches of earth could have saved my poor soul;
          The blood of the cross is my only foundation,
          The death of my Savior now maketh me whole.

            Chorus
            I am redeemed, but not with silver;
            I am bought, but not with gold;
            Bought with a price, the blood of Jesus,
            Precious price of love untold.

          Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption,
          The guilt on my conscience too heavy had grown;
          The blood of the cross is my only foundation,
          The death of my Savior could only atone.

            Chorus
            I am redeemed, but not with silver;
            I am bought, but not with gold;
            Bought with a price, the blood of Jesus,
            Precious price of love untold.

          Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption,
          The holy commandment forbade me draw near;
          The blood of the cross is my only foundation,
          The death of my Savior removeth my fear.

            Chorus
            I am redeemed, but not with silver;
            I am bought, but not with gold;
            Bought with a price, the blood of Jesus,
            Precious price of love untold.

          Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption,
          The way into heaven could not thus be bought;
          The blood of the cross is my only foundation,
          The death of my Savior redemption hath wrought

            Chorus
            I am redeemed, but not with silver;
            I am bought, but not with gold;
            Bought with a price, the blood of Jesus,
            Precious price of love untold.
