Songs of the Redeemed

"Trust Me and refuse to worry, for I am your Strength and Song... Since I am your Strength, I can empower you to handle each task as it comes. Because I am your Song, I can give you Joy as you work alongside Me." Exodus 15:2, Revelation 15:3 (277)
After Moses had lead the Israelite people through an impossibility (crossing the Red Sea, escaping Pharaoh's fierce Egyptian army) he spontaneously responded with a song of celebratory praise to God, often referred to as "The Song of Moses." (Ex.15:1-2)
I find it interesting to note that there will come a day when we will all sing "The Song of Moses." Revelation 15 calls it "The Song of the Lamb" sung by the redeemed. Rather than at the edge of the Red Sea filled with chariots, it will be sung on the heavenly sea of glass and fire. (Rev. 15:2-4)
We live in a time of turbulent seas and believing God to work out the impossibilities in our own lives can seem like such a challenge yet such an opportunity to experience and celebrate His saving power on our behalf!
We must keep singing the songs of The Lamb who has overcome the cross and the grave and enables us to "overcome by the blood of the Lamb," even in the midst of our own turbulent seas. (Rev. 12:11)
Incidentally, I've discovered that singing the songs of the redeemed often gives me the strength to endure until I am an overcomer.
Singing the Songs of the Redeemed...dmc


  1. Yes, singing the songs of the redeemed (or listening to them vocally or instrumentally) gives me encouragement and blessing. Whether it is a worship service, casual get together, recordings, TV or computers--music really ministers to me.

  2. I love music too! Anytime I am having trouble focusing or need encouragement I find one of my favorite worship CD's and turn it up! Found this song and love it! Hope you do too!


  3. Thanks , Melissa. I love songs based on great passages of scripture. My grandmother used to quote Psalm 121 from memory. King James Version, of course:)

  4. Thanks for your comments, ladies.
    Wow, Melissa...you are able to find the most awesome musical videos. The closing of this one is so well directed!
