Redeemed to Serve
Redeemed by the precious blood of the Lamb,
Forgiven and cleansed within,
Showers of blessings fall all around
Since He washed away our sin.
God forbid we keep such blessings
Merely for ourselves alone,
We have been redeemed to glorify God
And make His message known;
Redeemed to serve in His Kingdom
And proclaim His Truth throughout,
To a world searching and thirsting,
Lost in unbelief and doubt.
Our lives were purchased at Calvary,
The ultimate price was paid;
Christ loved us more than life itself
And His own He gladly gave.
Redeemed and so happy in Jesus,
Yet, so burdened for the lost;
Oh, God, take our lives and use us
Regardless of the cost.
"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law..."
"Then said Jesus to them...as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you."
(Gal.3:13; John 20:21)
