New Easter Music from Redeemer INdy

Here are two new songs from Easter at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis. “I am One of Those” was an offertory and “Sweet Love of Calvary” is a song that a writer/worship leader from Redeemer’s church plant “The Crossing” wrote for the congregation.

I am One of Those  {listen}
I am one of those, at the table not invited,
And to all here at the feast it’s very plain,

I cannot hide in etiquette or conversation,
But Christ himself sent word to me and so I came.
I am one of those who was dead and fully buried,
And I still bear every stigma of decay,
There is no way I can cover what I’ve been through,
‘cause when Jesus called I came fresh from the grave.
Though the world may number me among the foolish,
I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know

Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low
Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!
I am one of those, who was a leper and contagious,
The deformities and scars I have today,
Yet while I was vile with sickness Jesus loved me,
And He healed, restored and through and through remade.
I am one of those who was doomed to death in prison,
And I’ve done more evil things than I could say,
Jesus broke inside and there unlocked my shackles,
And to set me free, he died and took my place.
Though the world may number me among the foolish,
I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know

Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low
Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!

I am one of those, who is hard to love and ugly,

Self-Righteous critical religion was my stain.
So I ran Christ to wash and be discovered,
Jesus came to me and covered up my shame.
Though the world may number me among the foolish,
I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know

Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low
Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!

Sweet Love of Calvary {listen}
The world today, lets me waste away
And people let you down, Life will let you down
But Jesus the Son, Came down for us
To save us from our sin, that we were stuck in
For so long
So get ready, Get ready
Chorus:
And He called me and he loved me and He set me free
He went up on the cross, there He died for me
Sweet Love, Sweet Love, Sweet Love, Sweet Love
of Calvary
He sought me and he found and he lifted me
He healed me and forgave me and he carried me
Sweet Love, Sweet Love, Sweet Love, Sweet Love
of Calvary
In his arms I can rest, Lay down my weary head
Find Peace in his arms, that shield me from all harms
One day we’ll go up above, not below
To sing with all the saints, To sing with all the saints
In Glory
So get ready, Get ready
Chorus:
And He called me and he loved me and He set me free
He went up on the cross, there He died for me
Sweet Love, Sweet Love, Sweet Love, Sweet Love
of Calvary
