This week’s song is called You Alone Can Rescue by Matt Redman. It is written from Galatians 1:4, “who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,” (NASB). This song is a simple statement that God has, and is the only one, who can save us from our sinful lives. The song starts with the lyrics “Who, O Lord, could save themselves” which show us from the beginning that we cannot even save ourselves. Then speaking to Jesus we find the line “You, O Lord, have made a way”. This is a reference to what Jesus says “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6 NASB). Essentially this a great song that allows us to sing our faith and give God thanks and praise for saving us from our shameful ways.
Here is the song, take a listen and enjoy.
