I love this song!

I have to tell you that it’s one of those that makes me want to throw my hands in the air, in praise and thanksgiving, every time I hear it. Yes, I restrain myself if I’m driving.

My oldest son (who is in prison, but part of the worship team there), told me they are learning it too.  Think about that for a minute as you read the lyrics.

VERSE 1:

Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me
I was lost, but He brought me in
Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

CHORUS:

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God Yes I am

VERSE 2:

Free at last
He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me Yes
He died for me

CHORUS 2:

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

BRIDGE:
I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am

I am who You say I am

CHORUS 2:

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

Can you imagine physical prisoners singing about being “free indeed”?  I just pray for all of them that the message takes permanent root in their hearts!

Who You Say I Am was written by Hillsong worship pastors, Ben Fielding, and Reuben Morgan. They have written several worship songs, including Mighty to Save and God Is Able. 

Who You Say I Am is based on John 1:12

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

and John 8:36

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Who You Say I Am was released on the Hillsong Worship album There Is More in 2018

Here is a live video, uploaded to Youtube, by Hillsong Worship.

See you in church!
