REDEEMED

 

I’m not redeemed tonight

Because of anything I’ve done,

Or any place I’ve been, or any race I’ve won.

I’m not redeemed tonight

Because of my last name,

Or because of money or earthly fame.

I’m not redeemed tonight except by the blood,

Of the living Son of God.                 

– eab, Apr. ’80

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, redeemed,
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb;
Redeemed, redeemed,
His child and forever I am.

2. Redeemed, and so happy in Jesus,
No language my rapture can tell;
I know that the light of His presence
With me doth continually dwell.

3. I think of my blessèd Redeemer,
I think of Him all the day long:
I sing, for I cannot be silent;
His love is the theme of my song.

4. I know there’s a crown that is waiting,
In yonder bright mansion for me,
And soon, with the spirits made perfect,
At home with the Lord I shall be.

                        (Words – Fanny Crosby, Music William Kirkpatrick)

William J Kirkpatrick was born on this date 2/27/1838 at Duncannon, Penn­syl­vania.  He composed the melodies to which we sing “He Hideth My Soul,” “’Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus,” “Redeemed, How I Love to Proclaim It” and scores more.  Kirkpatrick wrote the words and music to “Lord, I’m Coming Home.”  The son of a teacher and a musician, Kirkpatrick in 1854 went to Philadelphia, to study music and learn a trade (was a carpenter for 3 yrs).  In 1855, he joined the Wharton Street Methodist Church, there were few church organs then – his violin and cello were in demand.
