Hallelujah what a Savior
Who could take a poor lost sinner
Lift him from the miry clay
And set him free
I will ever tell the story
Shouting glory glory glory
Hallelujah Jesus ransomed me

Verse 1

There's a sweet and blessed story
Of the Christ who came from Glory
Just to rescue me
From sin and misery
He in loving kindness sought me
And from sin and shame
Has bro't me
Hallelujah Jesus ransomed me

Verse 2

From the depth of sin and sadness
To the heights of joy and gladness
Jesus lifted me
in mercy full and free;
With His precious blood He bought me,
When I knew Him
not He sought me,
And in love divine He ransomed me.

Verse 3

By and by with
Joy increasing
And with gratitude unceasing
Lifted up with Christ
Forevermore to be
I will join the hosts
There singing
In the anthem ever ringing
To the King of Love
Who ransomed me

Composer: J. W. Henderson

Includes Wide Format PowerPoint file!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
