Redeemer of Israel, our only Delight
On Whom for a blessing we call
Our Shadow by day, and our Pillar by night
Our King, our Deliverer, our All!

We know He is coming, to gather His sheep
And lead them to Zion in love;
For why in the valley of death should they weep
Or in the lone wilderness rove?

How long we have wandered as strangers in sin
And cried in the desert for Thee!
Our foes have rejoiced when our sorrows they've seen
But Israel will shortly be free.

As children of Zion, good tidings for us
The tokens already appear
Fear not, and be just, for the kingdom is ours
The hour of redemption is near.

The lyrics to "Redeemer of Israel" is by Joseph Swain and the music is by Freeman Lewis.
