Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption

1
Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption;
No riches of earth could have saved my poor soul.
The blood of the cross is my only foundation;
The death of my Savior now maketh me whole.
  I am redeemed, but not with silver;
  I am bought, but not with gold;
Bought with a price—the blood of Jesus,
    Precious price of love untold.
2
Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption;
The guilt on my conscience too heavy had grown.
The blood of the cross is my only foundation;
The death of my Savior I only can own.
3
Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption;
The holy commandment forbade me draw near.
The blood of the cross is my only foundation;
The death of my Savior removeth my fear.
4
Nor silver nor gold hath obtained my redemption;
The way to God’s kingdom could not thus be bought.
The blood of the cross is my only foundation;
The death of my Savior redemption hath wrought.

It makes at the feet of Calvary, and tears too. Thank You Jesus for dying for me. Though gone far away from You for so long I can hear Your sweet voice calling me.

Came across this grand old hymn! Great words. Great truth contained in the hymn. Great memory. Took me back over 50 years. Great redemption: "The blood of the cross".

The paltry currency of earth has no value in this great matter.

With all the talk to collect gold an silver today I say I'll put my trust in Christ Jesus alone for today and tomorrow and my eternity.

Our redemption is from Christ alone and I am so grateful! Praise His Holy Name.
