We Are The Redeemed, We Are The Ones Who Are Free

This song by Steve Fee’s band is a little hard-edged compared to other worship songs here, but I really do love the power of this song. This isn’t an original video, but I really like the “in your face” lyrics; in fact, this is exactly the CGI I would do for this song.

Yeah we shine we shine the light of God
And when we speak we speak with words of love
And when we dance we may get a little wild
‘Cause we’re the people of God
Yeah the people of God

And when we sing we sing the angels’ songs
The ones they’re singing around the throne
Yeah yeah we worship the King
With ev’rything that we are
‘Cause we’re the people of God
Yeah the people of God yeah
The people of God yeah

We are the redeemed
We are the ones who are free
And we belong to Jesus
We are now alive
And in this world we will shine
And we belong to Jesus

And now is the time for the people to rise
Lift up a shout ev’rybody cry out
Raise your voice shout out a noise
Dance a dance of joy

Where the Spirit of God is freedom reigns
So come on come on
Throw off your prison chains
We’re liberated by a King
Only freedom remains
For the people of God yeah
The people of God yeah

We’re living in a kingdom that will never end
We’re living in the power that defeated sin
So come on ev’rybody
Let your praise begin
Jesus is alive and He’s coming again

(Yeah we’re) going into all the world
We’re carrying the light of Jesus
And we shine we shine in the darkest place
We shine

  1. It’s just a matter of time before someone sees this song posted online and tries to leave a comment about the fact that Steve has taken himself out of ministry and the band is no longer together. So let’s just state that here and now and get it over with.

    There’s another songwriter whose stuff I really like that once found himself in a similar situation. Actually a lot of the tunes he wrote for his lyrics are forgotten, but the lyrics survive in a book called Psalms.

    Are we clear now? Good. Sit back and enjoy the song.

    • Glad you also like the song.
      Lose the caps lock or bloggers won’t run your comments.
      The name of the singer appears in the first sentence of this post, and in the title of the You Tube upload.
