Redeemed By The Son



Tune: Fountain

('There is a fountain filled with blood')

Ephesians 1 v.7-12

**********

Redeemed by Christ, 'tis through His blood

A sparkling, cleansing flood

It be forgiveness of our sins

Washed away from within

Washed away from within

Washed away from within

It be forgiveness of our sins

Washed away from within

 

It by the riches of His grace

God's favour we do trace

In this He does to us abound

His wisdom, prudence found

His wisdom, prudence found

His wisdom, prudence found

In this He does to us abound

His wisdom, prudence found

 

Has made known to us mystery

Of His will to us, see

It agrees with His good pleasure

Purposed from His treasure

Purposed from His treasure

purposed from His treasure

it agrees with His good pleasure

Purposed from His treasure

 

It be that in fullness of times

End of life's seasons, rhymes

He might gather in one all things

In Christ, perfection brings

In Christ, perfection brings

In Christ, perfection brings

He might gather in one all things

In Christ, perfection brings

 

In Christ also we have obtained

An inheritance named

It be through God's pre-destiny

His mercies to us be

His mercies to us be

His mercies to us be

It be through God's pre-destiny

His mercies to use be

 

It be according to purpose

Of God, He works for us

Great things, he works by the counsel

Of His own will things all

Of his own will things all

Of His won will things all

Great things, He works by the counsel

Of His own will things all

 

So we should be unto the praise

Of God's glory, and raise

Thanks and worship, in Christ trusting

He does redemption bring

He does redemption bring

He does redemption bring

Thanks and worship, in Christ trusting

He does redemption bring

    In your hymn composition life did you ever have a punk period?

    (and are there any photos)

      I'm rather 'Ye Olde' writer, harking back to 4th Century AD hymns at times, though the Psalms were written around 11th Century BC!

        I was hoping to see a pic of you and Fido dressed in binliners and with spikey green hair singing good king wenceslas looked out on the feast of aggro, where the skinheads stood about, shouting you're a slag-oh etc....

          Thanks Fred. There's a 'slower' tune to it too, without extra repeat lines. Both may be suitable
