Nor give to God a ransom for him—
For the redemption of their souls is costly
Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
Hymn: TLH 360, st. 1,3,4,7 :
Oh, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing
1. Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!
3. Jesus!–the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
‘Tis life and health and peace.
4. He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avails for me.
7. Glory to God and praise and love
Be ever, ever given
By saints below and saints above,
The Church in earth and heaven.
