A Song’s Undying Message

Seems like all I can see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my  past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this  gonna last
Then you look at this prisoner and say to me
“son stop fighting  a fight that’s already been won”

I am redeemed, you set me free
So  I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain
Now I’m not who I  used to be
I am redeemed… I’m redeemed

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear  you whisper “child lift up your head”
I remember oh God you’re not done with  me yet

I am redeemed, you set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy  chains
Wipe away every stain
Now I’m not who I used to be

Because I  don’t have to be the old man inside of me
’cause his day is long dead and  gone because
I’ve got a new name, a new life I’m not the same
and a hope  that will carry me home

I am redeemed, you set me free
So I’ll shake  off these heavy chains and
Wipe away every stain
Now I’m not who I used to be

I am redeemed you set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains  and
And wipe away every stain
Now I’m not who I used to be
Oh God I’m  not who I used to be
Jesus I’m not who I used to be

‘Cause I am redeemed
Thank God redeemed
