A Redemption Song


Let him who is forgiven say, 'I'm free',
He's been redeemed from ev'ry 'niquity,
And let the saved say, 'I've got the vict'ry! '
For in them's the Lord Jesus Christ's story.

I will lift up my hands and worship Him
And to Him raise my voice to sing a hymn
For I'm saved - for whom He went to redeem,
Having my debts paid; yes, all of my sin!

For once I was lost but now I am found
Once fallen, now brought to a higher ground;
He's raised me from grave - now I'm heaven-bound,
No more a slave to sin; by Him I'm owned.

Where is your victory now, O Hades?
For the cross has declared: your pow'r will cease
Where is your sting over those who are His?
For you are conquered by the Prince of Peace.

Praises and glory be to God Most High!
Now, like an eagle, I am free to fly!
'Salvation belongs to our King! ', we cry
For we have been set free to testify!

How gracious are You, O Lord of heaven!
How good are You, Father of creation!
For by Your saving grace, we're forgiven
And through Your Son, You've made us Your children!

Let the saints rejoice in their Creator -
God remembers your transgressions no more;
Yes, let the saved be glad in their Savior
For by Christ, your sins have been atoned for!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was my entry to the World Poetry Contest, the first poem contest I've joined. It didn't won, though. But then, I'm still glad for writing a poem like this. This is poem is actually for Christians like me who are struggling against condemnation.

Romans 8: 1 says 'There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.'

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
