There is a song that we sing regularly that inspires us and gives us great joy titled “Redeemed,” written by Fanny J. Crosby and music by William J. Kirkpatrick. The first verse says, Redeemed -- how I love to proclaim it! Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Redeemed through His infinite mercy, His child and forever I am.
We are redeemed and we want to always proclaim it. We are redeemed because of the blood of Christ on the Cross and it is because of His infinite mercy that we are His children always!
The second verse proclaims His vast love and His invitation to be with Him today and always. Redeemed and so happy in Jesus, No language my rapture can tell. I know that the light of His presence with me shall continually dwell.
Are we happy in Jesus? We have the promise that we are continually in His guidance and His light is our presence dwelling in us. Praise His name!
I think of my blessed Redeemer, I think of Him all the day long; I sing, for I cannot be silent, His love is the theme of my song (verse three). Let’s dwell in His love and think of Him all day long. Let’s sing of His great love and not be silent about His love and always remember the theme of our song: The Love of Christ.
Verse four reads: I know I shall see in His beauty, the King in whose law I delight. Who lovingly guardeth my footsteps and giveth me songs in the night. Do we reign in His beauty and delight in following Him all the day? He guards our every footstep and we can always rejoice in that knowledge. And He gives us a song of delight. Let’s sing all the time, day and night, of His love.
The chorus reads, Redeemer, redeemed, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb! Redeemed, redeemed, His child and forever I am.
Let’s rejoice in His redeeming love. We are redeemed not because we have earned it, or because we deserve it, but rather our redemption is a Gift from God, because of His blood. We also can claim His love and know that we are and will forever be His children! Praise His name! Let’s claim His redeeming power and we want to always spread the exciting news!
[1 Peter 1:18-19] For we know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you are redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a Lamb without blemish or defect.
