In our Lord we have redemption
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

In our Lord we have redemption.

"In whom we have redemption." (Colossians 1,14)

1. In our Lord we have redemption,
  full remission in his blood;
from the curse entire exemption,
  from the curse pronounced by God:
    What a Saviour Jesus is!
    O what love, what love is his!

2. See the Lord, our nature wearing,
  this is wondrous in our eyes;
see him all our sorrows bearing,
  hark! 'tis he, 'tis he who cries,
    while he bears the curse for us,
    "Why am I forsaken thus?"

3. Awful cry! it shows his suff'ring
  far above the reach of thought;
when he gave himself an off'ring,
  and with blood his people bought:
    when their sins on him were laid,
    and their ransom fully paid.

4. Praise be his, all praise transcending,
  praise on earth, and praise in heav'n;
praise through ages never ending,
  to the Lamb of God be giv'n:
    he alone the Saviour is,
    everlasting praise be his.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 657.
