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.
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.
Redeemed, redeemed, redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
Redeemed, redeemed, his child and forever I am.
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.
I know I shall see, in his beauty,
the king in whose law I delight.
Who lovingly guards every footstep
and gives me a song in the night. (1882; words – Fanny Crosby, music – William Kirkpatrick)
1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
2Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—
those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
3those he gathered from the lands,
from east and west, from north and south. (Psalm 107)
8And a highway will be there;
it will be called the Way of Holiness;
it will be for those who walk on that Way.
The unclean will not journey on it;
wicked fools will not go about on it.
9No lion will be there,
nor any ravenous beast;
they will not be found there.
But only the redeemed will walk there,
10and those the Lord has rescued will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away. (Isaiah 35)
5Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. (John 14)
6You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5)
16“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
17For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God. (John 3)
