GI’ve been redeemed [I’ve Cbeen re-Gdeemed]
By the blood of the Lamb [by the Cblood of the GLamb]
I’ve been re-DdeemedD7
By the blood of the GLamb.
I’ve been re-Cdeemed by the blood of the Lamb,
Filled with the GHoly Spirit, I Emam:
All my Csins are washed a-Dway,
I’ve been Gredeemed.

Oh I went down [oh I went down]
to the river to pray [to the river to pray]
Oh I went down to the river to pray.
Oh I went down to the river to pray:
Felt so good that I stayed all day.
All my sins are washed away,
I’ve been redeemed.

And that’s not all [and that’s not all]
There’s more besides [there’s more besides]
And that’s not all there’s more besides.
And that’s not all there’s more besides:
I went to the river and I’ve been baptized.
All my sins are washed away,
I’ve been redeemed.

The Lord and I [the Lord and I],
we got so close (etc)
He filled me up with the Holy Ghost.
All my sins are washed away
I’ve been redeemed.

Now the Devil and me [the Devil and me]
We disagree (etc)
I hate him and he hates me
All my sins are washed away
I’ve been redeemed.

Now Satan’s mad [Now Satan’s mad]
and I’m so glad (etc)
He lost a soul that he thought he had
All my sins are washed away
I’ve been redeemed.

You can talk about me [You can talk about me]
All that you please (etc)
I’ll talk about you down on my knees
All my sins are washed away
I’ve been redeemed.

He’s coming back [He’s coming back]
To take me home (etc)
For we shall reap what we have sown
All my sins are washed away
I’ve been redeemed.

I’ve been redeemed [I’ve been redeemed]
By the blood of the lamb (etc)
I’m going to heaven with the Son of Man
All my sins are washed away
I’ve been redeemed.

    Just delighted to find the words of this song, which was sung at my baptism 35 years ago, and I have been looking for ever since! The words are simple and repetitive but so true, and still speak to the heart. The lines” You can talk about me as much as you please, I’ll talk about you when I’m on my knees” came to mind today, and God has used them to help me change my attitude towards a very unhappy lady I know who has a tendancy to gossip, and whom I’ve kept at arm’s length to protect myself!

    I had a dream about this song last night. As a young person I would get bored with singing this song over and over, but as I meditate on the words I get blessed and blessed again. Thanks

    Thank you VERY much for uploading this song. I learned it on a visit to a friend’s church in 1979 as a child and had forgotten some of the words. When I googled and saw it today, I was really glad. It is one of those few children’s songs that touches on the reality of Christian warfare. I appreciate you.
    By the way, what about the stanza that states ‘If you wanna see … that devil run … shoot him up with the gospel gun..?

    Tim Collins says:

    How come starting with the verse that begins with “The Lord and I” there are two lines missing per verse? The previous verses all have 7 lines the rest only have five?
    The Lord and I [the Lord and I],
    we got so close (etc)
    He filled me up with the Holy Ghost.
    All my sins are washed away
    I’ve been redeemed.

    I get that “He filled me with the Holy Ghost” should be repeated but there is an additional line that should be there before “All my sins…”
