I know You had me on Your mind
When You climbed up on that hill
For You saw me with eternal eyes
While I was yet in sin
Redeemer Savior Friend

Every stripe upon Your battered back
And every thorn that pierced Your brow
Every nail drawn deep through guiltless hands
Said that Your love knows no end
Redeemer Savior Friend

Redeemer redeem my heart again
Savior come and shelter me from sin
You're familiar with my weakness
Devoted to the end
Redeemer Savior Friend

So the grace You poured upon my life
Will return to You in praise
And I'll gladly lay down all my crowns
For the name by which I am saved(x2)

    We heard this in church last week and I can't get it out of my mind. You're familiar with my weakness, devoted to the end...

    Jesus is my redeemer, savior because he saved me from my sins and am now counted righteous before god because of his stripes... Above all he's my friend, indeed a true friend

    To see all of these comments about how endless is god's love and the passion that the lord jesus has for us is breath taking. Wether tylhese comments are from one person or many it is uplifting to be reminded that there are more believers in this world.
