Redemption Song

Last week a co-worker of mine posted an entry on her blog that really moved me. She wrote life is “but a breath”. We don’t know how long we will be here. Today could be her last living day on this earth (and mine just as well). But she ended her entry by writing what she is sure of in her Christian walk. Her words were an awesome reminder of what I take for granted every day and should not.

Twelve hours after I read her post, tragedy struck in Newtown, Connecticut. It literally takes the breath she wrote of away from me. I know the world is trying to wrap their brains around such senseless violence and the tragic loss of children and loved ones…

Today at church, I found myself lost in worship to a song that was new to me. It was simple, but powerful to me in the moment.  I am ever thankful for my redemption that started with the birth of my Savior.  And for 4 minutes or so, I was able to lift up my voice, lay down my burdens and praise the King who was born on Christmas day. Again I am reminded that even though our lives are “but a breath”, or even shorter for those 20 children, God planned a way to come down to find us. To love us. To save us. To spend eternity with Him.  (Thanks Linda for helping prepare my heart with your post!)

People are singing in the streets
Singing a timeless melody
Of how love came down, the lost were found
Here the sound of Christmas
Come celebrate the King

Everyone sing along
This is our redemption song
Love has come, love has come to save us
Emmanuel is here now

This is the time to stop the noise
Lay down your burdens, lift your voice
And praise this Son, the Holy One, who rescued us
It’s Christmas, let the world rejoice!

Everyone sing along
This is our redemption song
Love has come, love has come to save us
Emmanuel is here now
Go and tell the broken hearted
Love has come, love has come to save us
So sing along

(Hallelujah) This is our redemption song
(Hallelujah) Yeah!

Go and tell the broken hearted
Love has come, love has come to save us
So sing along

(Hallelujah) This is our redemption song
(Hallelujah) Yeah!
