There ain't never been a walk so lonesome
Than the walk of a sinning man
You can talk a smile, but all the while
There ain't nobody to understand
That for every laugh you've laughed
There's been a dozen more times you've cried
'Cause the prison you're in is made of bricks of sin
And you never know your inside

Who will pay the ransom
Who will pay the price
Who's gonna pay for my freedom, O Lord
And who's gonna pay for my life
I was a poor sinner living in bondage
Y'know it hurt so bad that I cried
But then the Lord paid the Ransom with the blood
Of Jesus Christ

Well I know about the way of salvation
And I thank the Lord I'm saved
I try to thank Him every night before I fall asleep
I try to thank Him at the break of day
A million dollars couldn't buy me salvation
I couldn't but it with the prayers I've prayed
But the Lord bought it for me with the blood of His son
Now He's taken all my sin away

Who will pay the ransom
Who will pay the price
Who's gonna pay for my freedom, O Lord
And who's gonna pay for my life
I was a poor sinner living in bondage
Y'know it hurt so bad that I cried
But then the Lord paid the Ransom with the blood
Of Jesus Christ

He was scourged with metal scraps
'till His back was black with blood
I saw streaks of red flow from the cuts on His head
When they crowned Him with the crown of thorns
They hung him naked on a cross
They drove nails in His hands
I saw tears in His eyes as they pierced His side
And they left Him on the wood to bleed

Jesus paid the ransom
Jesus paid the price
Jesus paid for my freedom, O Lord
And Jesus paid for my life
I was a poor sinner living in bondage
Y'know it hurt so bad that I cried
But then the Lord paid the Ransom with the blood
Of Jesus Christ

Yes they killed my Lord that Friday
But I tell you what I know is true
Jesus gave His life
As a ransom for me and you

Jesus paid the ransom
Jesus paid the price
Jesus paid for my freedom, O Lord
And Jesus paid for my life
I was a poor sinner living in bondage
Y'know it hurt so bad that I cried
But then the Lord paid the Ransom with the blood
Of Jesus Christ
