I will sing of the lamb

I will sing of the lamb,
of the price that was paid for me,
purchased by God,
giving all he could give!
Here now I stand
in the garments of righteousness;
death has no hold, for in Jesus I live.

2. I will sing of his blood
that flows for my wretchedness,
wounds that are bared
that I may be healed;
power and compassion,
the marks of his ministry:
may they be mine as I harvest his field.

O, I will sing of the Lamb.
O, I will sing of the Lamb.
My heart fills with wonder,
my mouth fills with praise!
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

3. Once I was blind,
yet believed I saw everything,
proud in my ways,
yet a fool in my part;
lost and alone
in the company of multitudes,
life in my body,
yet death in my heart.

O, I will sing of the Lamb.
O, I will sing of the Lamb.
O, why should the King
save a sinner like me?
Hallelujah, hallelujah.

4. What shall I give
to the man who gave everything,
humbling himself
before all he had made?
Dare I withhold
my own life from his sovereignty?
I shall give all for the sake of his name!

O, I will sing of the Lamb.
O, I will sing of the Lamb.
I’ll sing of his love
for the rest of my days!
Hallelujah, hallelujah.
