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.

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.
