Twas The Life Of Christ My Lord

‘Twas the life of Christ, my Lord,
Paid my ransom, set me free;
He redeemed me by his blood
Shed on the cross of Calvary.

Bought with a price, not of silver or gold;
Bought with a price of a value yet untold;
‘Twas the blood of Jesus, shed on Calvary,
Purchased by redemption and set me free.

O the cross, uplifted high,
So that all the world might see;
Bears the Lamb of God, to die
There on the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

Such a ransom ne’er was known,
Such a love, to die for me!
Wondrous love, to leave a throne,
Choosing a cross on Calvary. [Refrain]

Can a sinner know the cost?
Was it worth a love like mine
That a King, to save the lost,
Pays the great price with life divine. [Refrain]
