King of Kings

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. (Ephesians 1:7)

I am redeemed, my King of Kings
You carry me on eagles’ wings
I’m changing by Your grace alone
The glory of Your plan made known

Forsaking love of worldly things
I am redeemed, my King of Kings
Acknowledging iniquities
It’s only You I long to please

Christ, my Lord and my defender
Bring me to divine surrender
I am redeemed, my King of Kings
You lead me to Your living springs

To You I turn with all my soul
Relinquishing complete control
With joy and gladness my heart sings
I am redeemed, my King of Kings

Psalm 32:5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity.  I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD “— and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah

Psalm 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

Romans 3:23-25 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.

    I am working on a poetry project for my Literature class and would love to include this poem, if you don’t mind. My only problem is I want to give you full credit for this poem, but ran across it through google, and am unable to find a name. To whom am I giving the credit, exactly?

    Fantastic. I like the repetition. Very Psalms. The placement of “I am redeemed, my King of Kings” changing from verse to verse really calls to mind the “Alpha and Omega” aspect of God. I also like that “you” and “I” are tucked next to each other in two stanzas. It really indicates the proximity of the poem \ narrator to God. Lastly, I really like the pairing of “defender” with “surrender”. If you think of rhyming couplets as related it really plays nicely. “Defending” and “Surrendering” are two opposites but there union here reminds us all as Christians of Christ’s message of peace and God’s ability to merge two seemingly contrary concepts.
