I Stand Redeemed


At the dawn of eternity, when the mist of time is gone,
when the choir of heaven gathers to begin redemption's song,
I will bow before my Savior in a body new and whole;
then I'll rise to sing His praises while eternal ages roll.

Chorus:
I stand redeemed by the blood of Jesus.
The price is paid; my debt is gone.
The chains that bound me no longer hold me.
Because of Calv'ry I stand redeemed.

As I gaze upon my Savior and the wounds He bore for me,
I will sing of His salvation bought with blood upon the tree.
While the host of angels listen to a song they cannot sing,
I will voice my praise to Jesus with the song of the redeemed.

Chorus:
I stand redeemed by the blood of Jesus.
The price is paid; my debt is gone.
The chains that bound me no longer hold me.
Because of Calv'ry I stand redeemed.

Yet another of my favorite songs.  When I sang this in our church choir, I literally got goosebumps and tears!  When we presented it in church, I have never heard us so sure.  The words we sang were a message from our hearts.  This whole song is a story about our victorious salvation, a picture of Heaven, and one day our standing there looking into God's face.  What a moment that will be.

I always love it when a arranger puts music to words that you can tell just fit.  Ron Hamilton did that with this piece.

  1. Redemption is not perfection. The redeemed must realize their imperfections. See the link below for more info.
