I will sing of my Redeemer

I will sing of my Redeemer,
  And His wondrous love to me;
On the cruel cross He suffered,
  From the curse to set me free.
  Sing, oh, sing of my Redeemer,
  With His blood He purchased me,
On the cross He sealed my pardon,
    Paid the debt, and made me free.
I will tell the wondrous story,
  How my lost estate to save,
In His boundless love and mercy,
  He the ransom freely gave.
I will praise my dear Redeemer,
  His triumphant pow'r I'll tell,
How the victory He giveth
  Over sin, and death, and hell.
I will sing of my Redeemer,
  And His heav'nly love to me;
He from death to life hath brought me,
  Son of God with Him to be.

This song was one of my best songs, since It enpowered me when challenges and temptations came while I was in school & gave me strength to encounter and overcome them.

I woke up this morning with the Igbo version of this song in my spirit: “Agamet’Onye-ngbaputam”

I sang it from the Igbo Hymn Book and then searched online for the English version.

I was going through some personal challenges in my walk of righteousness and prayed last night for forgiveness and deliverance. This song in my spirit is God’s answer. Indeed God has set me free from sin, death and hell with His love demonstrated upon the cross.

A train accident caused the untimely death of Phillip P. Bliss when he was only thirty-eight years old. He was visiting an old childhood friend in Rome, Pennsylvania on December of 1876 and was returning to Chicago with his wife when a railroad bridge near Ashtabula, Ohio, collapsed. The train fell sixty feet into a ravine and caught fire killing one hundred passengers. Bliss survived the fall and escaped through a window. He returned to the wreckage in order to save his wife and in doing so, both died in the fire.

This hymn text by Bliss was found in his trunk which survived the accident. James McGranahan composed this tune shortly after Bliss’s death, while considering Major Whittle’s proposal to replace Bliss as Whittle’s song leader in his future evangelistic campaigns. The hymn had a profound spiritual impact when it was first introduced to a large audience in Chicago. Major Whittle told the crowd how he had found the hymn in Bliss’s trunk and how McGranahan had composed the music for the text and now the writer of this tune would continue the work begun by Bliss.

The hymn first appeared in print in 1877 in “Welcome Tidings, ” a new collection for Sunday schools, compiled by Robert Lowry.

I have certainly been set FREE from sin, death and hell. Thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the Cross and the shedding of His most precious blood. Yes He paid my debt, and everyone who REPENTS and believes. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God. Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so!
