I remember as a child singing the hymn written by James Rowe and titled “Redeemed” with the refrain bouncing off the walls of our country church and settling into my spirit, I’m redeemed by love divine! Glory, glory! Christ is mine, Christ is mine! All to Him I now resign, resign I have been redeemed, redeemed!
