I Know That My Redeemer Lives
“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.” Job 19:25
I know that my Redeemer lives!
And with His life my sin forgives.
O Jesus, Lord, I’ll hope and pray,
And patient be—though come what may.
When troubles come with grief and tears
And hope is lost in all my fears,
On God who gives and takes away
My sins, and doubts, and sorrows lay.
His ways are wondrous, high above,
So full of righteousness and love.
So glorious is my God of grace,
My longing heart leaps from its place.
Redeeming mercy gives me light
And songs of joy within the night.
Since Jesus all my troubles bore,
I am God’s friend forevermore!
O great Redeemer, glorious sight!
Your will and ways are always right.
My heart within me yearns to see
Your glory, light, and majesty!
