The Freely Forgiven lyrics describe Jesus’ heart as the ocean. We do not know how deep and how wide it is. It is full of love and grace for us. Freely forgiving us. This is an extremely catchy song, full of grace-filled truths.
I first heard Freely Forgiven at a training session for Rock Kidz servers. Everyone was jumping up and down when we were singing this song. Mind you, we are not teenagers.
So happy that it is now included in the I Sing Hosanna worship album so now we can jump up and down at home because we have been freely forgiven. 🙂
The Freely Forgiven lyrics are inspired by the following bible verses:
16 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.John 3:16
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.Ephesians 3:17-19
41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?Luke 7:41-42
