Jesus My Redeemer by Chris Tomlin

Today’s strong worship song is Chris Tomlin’s Jesus My Redeemer which came out in 2010. Like many of Chris Tomlin’s songs the lyrics are very personal in nature. It is as if Jesus is sitting in the same room listening to his song. ¬†This is also what makes this song work well in worship since worship is meant to be an exchange or dialogue between us and God. ¬†Scripture references include Psalm 103:4, Isaiah 59:20, Ephesians 1:7, 2 Corinthians 8:9, 1 Timothy 2:2.

Jesus My Redeemer

You traded riches to run to my rescue
Oh, my redeemer
You take the pieces and turn them to praises
Oh, my Redeemer
Oh, my Redeemer

Love I cannot deny
Sure as the morning light
Jesus, my Redeemer

You paid my ransom
You chose to suffer
Oh, my Redeemer
Oh, my Redeemer

Love I cannot deny
Sure as the morning light
Jesus, my Redeemer
Now I am not ashamed
To You be the highest praise
Jesus, my Redeemer
My Redeemer

No other one so glorious
You outshine the sun
No other love like Jesus
You outshine the sun
