Some Songs For a Friday

It’s Friday, and the day I normally post a post over here on the Church Set Free Blog. The only problem is; I was so busy this week with work and our youth Revival I simply didn’t get around to it. So, we are having leftovers! One of the things I really enjoy is taking one of my favorite worship songs or hymns and doing and exposition of sorts of the lyrics. So, this week my post is going to be a recap of some of my personal favorites of that category. Enjoy!


Because He Lives

God sent His son, They called Him Jesus. He came to love, heal and forgive. He lived and died, to buy my pardon. An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.

How sweet to hold a new born baby, and feel the pride and joy he gives. But greater still is that assurance the child can face uncertain days because He lives.

And then one day, I’ll cross that river. I’ll fight life’s final war with pain. And then as death gives way to victory. I’ll see the light of glory and I’ll know that He lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know,  He holds the future.
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

He Touched Me

Shackled by a heavy burden ‘Neath a load of guilt and shame Then the hand of Jesus touched me And now I am no longer the same

He touched me, Oh, He touched me And Oh the joy that floods my soul Something happened and now I know He touched me and made me whole

Since I met this blessed Savior And since he cleaned and made me whole I never cease to praise Him I’ll shout it while eternity rolls

Oh He touched me, oh He touched me And oh the joy that floods my soul Something happened and now I know He touched me and made me whole.

I Am Redeemed

I was a slave in a foreign land
So very far from the Father’s loving hand
He rescued me, one glorious day
He brought me out, paid a debt I could not pay

I am redeemed, I am redeemed
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free
I am redeemed, I am redeemed
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free

Still I live, in a foreign land
Now I’m free according to redemptions plan
Soon I’ll join the robed in white, the redeemed
We’ll sing a song the holy angels, cannot sing

I am redeemed, I am redeemed
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free
I am redeemed, I am redeemed
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free

“Some glorious morning they will come from all nations,
from every generation. Side by side they will march into the
celestial city of Jehova and in perfect harmony they will begin
humming a brand new song. A song composed by God
Himself, arranged for His children. And as the saved by grace
approach the land of their dreams, the host of Heaven will
step aside. Even the angels will be silent. For they cannot
sing this new song. For this song is reserved for voices that
once cried out for a redeemer. Those washed in the blood
of the Lamb.”

I am redeemed, by love divine
Glory, glory Christ is mine, He’s mine
All to him, I now resign
Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free.
My Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free.

Forever Changed

Now there were those who said I’d surely fall
When I told them I’d given Jesus my all
And I guess I really can’t blame them for having their doubts
For they only knew what I used to be
But oh! What a difference the Lord made in me
What I got was real!
And praise God I’m still serving Him now.

Forever changed! I’m forever changed!
All things are brand new!
I tell you it’s true, I’m not the same!
For He changed the heart of me
He changed my eternal destiny.
Old things passed away
Thank God for the day
My forever changed!

Now if this life was all that He promised to me
Friend, I’d still choose to serve the Lord faithfully.
Once I was lost, I was headed for Hell
But then I got saved and now all is well
My forever began when I took the precious hands of Jesus, my Lord!

Forever changed! I’m forever changed!
All things are brand new!
I tell you it’s true, I’m not the same!
For He changed the heart of me
He changed my eternal destiny.
Old things passed away
Thank God for the day
My forever changed!

When He changed the heart of me
He changed my eternal destiny.
Old things passed away,
Thank God for the day
My forever changed!

It Is Well With My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!—
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
