Hymn History:  I Will Sing of My Redeemer.  

Philip P. Bliss, 1876. This is perhaps the last hymn Bliss wrote before he died in a trai n wreck. He survived the initial crash, but was killed trying (unsuccessfully) to rescue his wife. The lyrics were found in his belongings after the accident.

This song is one of the first ever recorded on
a

phonograph.   George  Stebbins  made  the

recording during a demonstration of Thomas

Edison’s new invention in New York City.

The Lyrics:  I Will Sing of My Redeemer


  I will sing of my Redeemer,
                                 And His wondrous love to me;
On the cruel cross He suffered,
From the curse to set me free.  
Refrain
Sing, oh sing, of my Redeemer,
With His blood, He purchased me.
On the cross, He sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt, and made me free.  

I will tell the wondrous story,
How my lost estate to save,
In His boundless love and mercy,
He the ransom freely gave.
Refrain
I will praise my dear Redeemer,
His triumphant power I’ll tell,
How the victory He giveth
Over sin, and death, and hell.
Refrain
I will sing of my Redeemer,
And His heav’nly love to me;
He from death to life hath brought me,
Son of God with Him to be.
