My Son - God’s Redeemed
Oh, My Son God’s Redeemed
Though I gave birth to Him He doesn’t belong to me
For the joy in the times I had with him - -my heart Sings
I knew in giving Him roots in your Word – that You would bring forth His Wings
I cherished each moment I was given, as He so quickly grew
Knowing one day that season would end –He would answer your call - leave to serve You!
All things are yours Lord- yes this is Your show
So as instructed I trained Him up in the Way that He should Go
Oh, My Son, God’s Redeemed….
As He grew into a beautiful and Godly Man-
Your Spirit consistently and lovingly brought Him to Understand
Everything that He has - - everything He is and can be in You
Yes, It was Your love and might Lord that guided Him into that Truth
Though He walks through many trials in this dry place
He overcomes each obstacle by Your Strength, Love and Your Grace
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, yes there are many who fall
But Your Word endures, it is sure, and you deliver them out of them all.
My Son, God’s Redeemed….
He was created from Your Belly dear God -- Brought forth from my womb
Now He is risen with Christ- taken up His cross- remembering that empty tomb
As His Mother, I gave him seed of your foundation –preparing Him for his race
So with confidence he’d move forth- developing in his Gifts given by Your Grace
Lord I lift Your name on High- -Oh, I dare not steal Your Glory
But this is Your Word My testimony; which is why I share this story
In the natural for a moment I felt sad, but then I thought how could I be?
Though I may lose Him – for a season to His calling in You
I will see him again, we will rejoice in Your presence; blessed of the Lord for all eternity
I praise You Lord that You gave him Natural life through me
But I praise You all the more that You gave Him eternal life in You as Your Redeemed
