Sweet Redeemer

No 121 in AOV NG is “Sweet Redeemer,” by Steve Angrisano and Sarah Hart, who are both big news in the States. This is a reconciliation song and a fine pop song too.

It is available for purchase for download at spiritandsong.

 

This is different to the version on the AOV NG CD which leaves out verse 2.  It has a lovely fiddle part that I have tried to do in MIDI in the backing…sigh.

Verse 1

King of Kings, blessed Jesus,
hand of mercy, giver of grace;
I have come to sing glory,
to lay my heart before you
in this place.

Refrain
Sweet redeemer,
I surrender all I am to you.
Sweet redeemer,
I surrender all I am to you.

Verse 2

I was lost and you found me;
in the darkness, you were my light.
When I fell down, you forgave me,
lifted me up and held me to your side.

Refrain

Bridge
From the shadows of the tomb
you called me,
you rolled away the stone.
From the burden of my sin
you saved me,
you made my heart your home.

Refrain
