Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs ~ There is a Redeemer

There is a Redeemer, Jesus, God's own Son,
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One.

Thank you, O my Father, for giving us Your Son;
And leaving Your Spirit 'til the work on earth is done.

Jesus, my Redeemer, Name above all names,
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, hope for sinners slain.

When I stand in glory I will see His face,
There I'll serve my King forever in that holy place.

words and music by Keith Green, 1982

This is one of my favourites! I was thinking that Melody co-wrote this one with him... do you know if that's true?

Sorry, I don't know--would be interested to know more! It is a tune that goes through my head often, and is one of the FIRST tunes I added when I FINALLY got my MP3 player up and running.
