Proverbs 23:11
"For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee."

divider

          Up Calvary'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!

          "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
            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!

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

            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!
