King’s ransom, as He watched

His Son sigh last breath on cross—

Before death, grave, then

Victory’s resurrection.

All this He offered willingly,

That we might be forever free.

No flighty promise, His covenant

Signed with Christ’s own blood—

It binds with crimson cord

Indestructible, those He calls
