I Am Redeemed

Previously recorded by Poet Voices.

Written by Phil Cross

 

VERSE 1
I was a slave in a foreign land
So very far from the Father’s loving hand
He rescued me, one glorious day
He brought me out, paid a debt I could not pay

CHORUS
I am redeemed, I am redeemed
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free
I am redeemed, I am redeemed
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free

VERSE 2
Still I live, in a foreign land
Now I’m free according to redemption’s plan
Soon I’ll join the robed in white, the redeemed
We’ll sing a song the holy angels, cannot sing

SPOKEN BRIDGE
Some glorious morning they will come from all nations, from every generation. Side by side they will march into the celestial city of Jehovah and in perfect harmony they will begin humming a brand new song. A song composed by God Himself, arranged for His children. And as the saved by grace approach the land of their dreams, the host of Heaven will step aside. Even the angels will be silent. For they cannot sing this new song. For this song is reserved for voices that once cried out for a redeemer. Those washed in the blood
of the Lamb.

CHORUS 2
I am redeemed, by love divine
Glory, glory Christ is mine, He’s mine
All to him, I now resign
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free.
My Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free.
