To Pay The Debt For Adams Race


To pay the debt for Adam’s race
The blessed Saviour came;
And since I’ve tasted of His grace,
I’m glad I bear His name.

Refrain:
I’m glad I’m called a Christian,
My soul is all aflame;
For since I found my Saviour,
I’m glad I bear His name.

Altho’ upon the rugged tree,
He bore a death of shame,
Yet since He died to ransom me,
I’m glad I bear His name. [Refrain]

To try to honor Christ my Lord
Is now my greatest aim;
For since His mercy I implored
I’m glad I bear His name. [Refrain]

His life, His death, His tears, His cross,
I emulate and claim;
Thro’ good or ill, thro’ gain or loss,
I’m glad I bear His name. [Refrain]

And when I sing the new, new song,
I know ’twill be the same;
For I shall tell that heav’nly throng,
How once I bore His name. [Refrain]
