Praise God, through Christ he ransomed
Me, no longer bound, my soul's set free
Forever, by him I'll stand on solid rock, not
Shifting sand, in him my trust is securely

Planned, though sometimes weakened
In life's foray, and nothing helps except
To pray, asking for his mercy and grace,
Finding my place away from heartache,

Sin, and the weight of the world, satan's
Plan, but God's way brings redemption's
Joy, no longer bound as satan's toy, they
Tied and nailed Jesus to a wooden beam

Where he poured out his blood for all to
See, bore my sins and the sins of many
So we could be free from death's penalty
As redeemed, restored, ransomed, reborn!

Galatians 3:13 -- Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Jude 1:24-25 -- Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Isaiah 35:10 -- And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
