Lyrics

Amos' Life song: We are the Redeemed
Nicky Moran March 2019

Intro:
we are the Redeemed
we are the Redeemed
we are the Redeemed
we are the Redeemed

Verse 1:
Struggling with identity
moving to the big city
People not accepting me
The Samoan in me fought back

Verse 2:
Religion didn’t touch me
drinking at all the parties
Imprisoned by hostility
Head Hunters share my scars

Verse 3:
Left that chapter as president
Dealing in all that I could get-
the needles barely made a dent
while the law beat down my doors

Chorus 1x2:
Wasted in the Outreach centre
The Truth called out my name
He kick started the greatest ride
Jesus freed me from all my shame

Verse 4:
Paranoid living, needing to change
Drawn to church, feeling so strange-
Wanna get higher, wanna exchange
Release the past, Trust His Name

Chorus 2x2:
Bursting into holy freedom
Learning to stay clean
Riding together loving our neighbours
For the Lord we are the Redeemed

Bridge 1:
The enemy tried to crush my dreams
Now I call out in Jesus name
Healing family relationships
He taught me to love not blame

Bridge 2:
Greatest gift of all is His pure love
Im a vehicle, Im here for Him
reaching out to youth, in their cells
He taught me to share with them

Chorus 1:
Wasted in the Outreach centre
The Truth called out my name
He kick started the greatest ride
Jesus freed me from all my shame

Chorus 2:
Bursting into holy freedom
Learning to stay clean
Riding together loving our neighbours
For the Lord we are the Redeemed

Coda x2:
Riding together loving our neighbours
For the Lord we are the Redeemed

Outro x2:
we are the Redeemed
we are the Redeemed
we are the Redeemed
we are the Redeemed
