Redeemed—how I love to proclaim it

1
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 blessed 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 I shall see in His beauty
The King in whose way I delight;
Who lovingly guardeth my footsteps,
And giveth me songs in the night.

Verse 2 states that the light of His presence with me doth continually dwell. Paul in Ephesians 3:17 prays for the Ephesians that Christ may continually dwell in their hearts. Christ has an ongoing dwelling, and His presense is not just an event in the past.

I love this song because it reminds me of the redemption work that Jesus did on the cross for me. It reminds me that once I was a sinner and not in a right standing with God, but because of His grace, I am now redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and on my way home to be with Him forever; what a wonderful thought!!

This song has been in my head lately and I have enjoyed singing the parts that I can remember.

I like to sing verse 3 like this:

I drink of my blessed Redeemer,

I drink of Him all the day long;

I drink, for I cannot be silent;

His love is the theme of my song.

Lord, increase my drinking!!

Buried my great granddaddy with this song after he came home from the Civil War...he had requested it at church service the day before he died.
