Okay, enough of me jumping around and screaming my head off. KLOVE just played a new single that has yet to be released. Guess by who? THE NEWSBOYS!!!!
You have no idea how long I have been waiting for this single! They performed it on their summer tour, and we got to hear it at the Ventura County fair. It's a praise song where the audience can sing back, and it's got some of the Newsboys rock sound in it. I love it. If you go to their website, you can hear the whole song! It's recorded live I believe. And oooohhh myyyyy. One of my favorite parts is when Pete starts speaking and he quotes some verses from Isaiah 53! Hehe during the concert, he was pacing on the stage when he started quoting! Okay, so on the recording, he's not exactly quoting the scripture, but it is from Isaiah 53. He just leaves little bits out. In the concert, I think he quoted more.
I AM FREE
(Oh!Who the Son sets free is free indeed! Do you believe that?)
Through You the blind will see
Through You the mute will sing
Through You the dead will raise
Through You all hearts will praise
Through You the darkness flees
Through You my heart screams “I am free”
I am free to run (I am free to run)
I am free to dance (I am free to dance)
I am free to live for You (I am free to live for You)
I am free (I am free)
Who the Son sets free is free indeed. Do you believe that?
As the first of Adam's sweat surrounds my face
Lord, may the last of Adam's blood, my soul embrace
(Parts of Isaiah 53:3-5)
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
Surely he took up our infirmities, surely carried our sorrows,
But he was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities
Because of his wounds, we are healed
Because of his wounds, I am healed
Because of his wounds, you are healed
Do you believe that? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
I am free!
The hand of freedom is stretching out to you. Hold out your hands to freedom: freedom in your head, freedom in your heart, freedom in your marriage, freedom in your mind, freedom in your emotions, freedom in every area of your life.
The freedom comes through the blood, it comes through the word. It comes through the body. It comes through the spiritual family. It comes through the purpose of God
It's price has been paid. Freedom's price has been paid. The price has been paid.
