I WAS BOUGHT FROM BEING A SLAVE 

Was once a slave 
But now I am save
I was once wounded by enemies's sword
But now I'm healed by his salve 
I was once lost but now I'm found by his word 

He bought me from my old now I am new 
I would have seek ye if earlier I knew 

I was long ago a pig but now I'm redeem into white sheep 
I once lived in a place full of mess
But now I found grace under his tent 
I was once lived a hard life but now one that's cheap 

He bought me from my old now I am new 
I would have seek him if earlier I knew 

Sometimes I was tagged a carrier of sorrow
Days and night only my tears I could swallow
But now I am tagged a carrier of holy ghost 
In whom I can fully boast 
That  I am now free and declare myself a product of the holy ghost 

What would I gain if I don't have you in my life 
Where would I be if you don't show up in my life 
For my sake you took many stripes 
Because of my sins you were stripped
For the sins you didn't commit you were killed 
Oh Lord how worthy am I to you that made ye deserved my stripes

To your name alone I'll not be silent
If thousands it takes I'll wait for you in patient
To your name forever I'll sing hosanna
Let the world with me shout hallelujah 
For we deserve to die but for us he died 
And for us to be redeemed he resurrected and made us victorious
