The Freely Forgiven lyrics describes Jesus’ heart as oceans. 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, yet 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 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.John 3:16
17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.Ephesians 14:17-19
41 “There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”Luke 7:41-42

God so loved the world He gave His only Son Perfect love upon the cross I'll never ever know How deep, how wide Are the oceans of His heart Full of love and grace for us Freely forgiven we are Loved by the Saviour we are Children of God Called to shout His name Freely forgiven we are Forever favoured we are Children of God Called to shout His name
