Being proud
I'll say a loud
Jesus Christ is my Redeemer
Delighted in joy
Satisfaction I found
Knowing Jesus' passion
Prepared the solid ground

Elation arising from Christ final act,
The new believers fell, then hid back,
Afraid to confess Christ, whom they knew
Losing their pride for Him, they withdrew,
Disdainful behavior, as their final track,
Jesus Christ didn't holdback,
He paid the price,
For my sin, and yours
He gave His life, on the cross,
Where true life is insured.

Beneath the cross of Jesus stood His mother, and some others,
There on the cross hang Christ Our Brother,
Through Jesus, I can with humble pride,
Know that His redeeming blood did supply,
The Grace I so desperately do need,

Christ decreed,
By My shed blood, You can be free,
On this my Father and I agree,
The weight of your sin, just cast upon Me.
Your totally forgiven, no debt to pay,
Just keep on the straight and narrow way.

With pride My Father looks upon Me,
I am His Beloved Son, I sit by His right side,
I AM the One, In whom He take's pride!
