Definition: a person who redeems, Jesus Christ
This beloved Christian hymn by Samuel Medley is from the 18th century. "My Redeemer Lives" is an affirmation and celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The lyrics of this hymn rejoice in the life of Jesus and the salvation He gives to mankind.
1 I know that my Redeemer lives;
what comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, He lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my everliving Head.
2 He lives triumphant from the grave,
He lives eternally to save,
He lives all-glorious in the sky,
He lives exalted there on high.
3 He lives to bless me with His love,
He lives to plead for me above,
He lives my hungry soul to feed,
He lives to help in time of need.
4 He lives to grant me rich supply,
He lives to guide me with His eye,
He lives to comfort me when faint,
He live to hear my soul's complaint.
5 He lives to silence all my fears,
He lives to wipe away my tears,
He lives to calm my troubled heart,
He lives all blessings to impart.
6 He lives, my kind, wise, heav'nly friend,
He lives and loves me to the end;
He lives, and while He lives, I'll sing;
He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King.
7 He lives and grants me daily breath;
He lives and I shall conquer death;
He lives my mansion to prepare;
He lives to bring me safely there.
8 He lives, all glory to His name!
He lives, my Jesus, still the same.
Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives,
"I know that my Redeemer lives!"
Jesus is the Redeemer, the Deliverer, Rescuer, Savior (Phil 2:10).
His death was the exchange for payment of our sin. Even in a time like this, we get 'up on our feet. Stand tall with our heads held high. Help is on the way!' (Luke 21:28 Message)
