I will Sing of My Redeemer

Music HighwayLast year in November, 52 weeks ago, I posted a song that was played on WIHS 104.9 FM radio called, Sing Allelu, sung by Fernando Ortega (click here for the post). It is an inspirational Christian song of gratitude for what God has done and especially for what He has given us.

Once again, this past Thanksgiving Day, many of us Christians in this country (USA) and elsewhere were reminded to be indeed thankful for all of the blessings God has given us. We can never thank HIm enough especially for the spiritual blessings He has given us through His Holy Spirit, the printed Word – the Bible and Jesus Christ.

God has also provided us singers and musicians to comfort and lift up our hearts with praise. Fernando Ortega is one of them that I enjoy listening to. I have grown to appreciate the worshipful style of his compositions and also his arrangements of the classic hymns.

Once again, several times this year and mostly in the morning, I would listen to one of his songs played on this Christian radio station I mentioned, WIHS 104.9 FM. As a matter of fact, on Monday November 12, 2015 at approximately 6:45 AM, Mrs. Peter Daily in “the Classic Hymn” portion of the radio broadcast, played this song, I Will Sing Of My Redeemer, composed by Phillip P. Bliss. It is indeed a classic hymn richly enhanced by the musical talent of Fernando Ortega. I was very moved and thankful to hear it.

Even though Thanksgiving Day has once again passed by here in the States two days ago, I still want to say ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ to all of you readers of this blog. My prayers are that we continue to grow and focus on what God has done and is doing in our lives. Let us give Him all the praise, glory and honor for the abundant grace and love He has bestowed on us.

Thank you always WIHS 104.9 FM and thank you Lord God, always.

I will sing of my Redeemer,
And His wondrous love to me;
On the cruel cross He suffered,
From the curse to set me free.

Sing, O sing,
Of my Redeemer,
With His blood,
He purchased me.
On the cross,
He sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt,
And made me free.

George Stebbins (xxx) was instrumental in having this hymn be one of the first songs recorded on Thomas Edison's new invention, the phonograph.

I will tell the wondrous story,
How my lost estate to save,
In His boundless love and mercy,
He the ransom freely gave.

Sing, O sing,
Of my Redeemer,
With His blood,
He purchased me.
On the cross,
He sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt,
And made me free.

I will praise my dear Redeemer,
His triumphant power I’ll tell,
How the victory He giveth
Over sin, and death, and hell.

Sing, O sing,
Of my Redeemer,
With His blood,
He purchased me.
On the cross,
He sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt,
And made me free.  (Repeat)
