Song

   - Who you say I am

The song 'Who You Say I Am' is a contemporary Christian song that carries deep theological and spiritual meanings. Its lyrics reflect several key themes common in Christian belief:Divine Love and Acceptance: The song begins with a sense of wonder and gratitude towards the Christian understanding of God, who is portrayed as a loving and accepting deity. The lines 'Who am I that the highest King would welcome me?' express a sense of humility and amazement at being loved and accepted by God.



Transformation and Redemption: The song speaks about being lost and then brought into a state of grace ('I was lost, but He brought me in'). This reflects the Christian concept of salvation and redemption through Jesus Christ. The idea that “Who the Son sets free, Oh, is free indeed” alludes to the New Testament teachings that freedom from sin and its consequences comes through Jesus (the Son).

Identity in God: A central theme of the song is the identity of believers as children of God ('I'm a child of God, yes, I am'). This notion is about finding one's true identity and worth in the relationship with God, rather than in worldly status or personal achievements.

Grace and Forgiveness: The reference to being a “slave to sin” and then mentioning that “Jesus died for me” touches on the Christian belief in the sacrificial death of Jesus as a means of granting grace and forgiveness to humanity.

Belonging and Assurance: The lyrics repeatedly affirm the believer's place in God’s family (“In my Father's house, There's a place for me”). This is about belonging, assurance, and the promise of a spiritual home with God.

Empowerment and Security: The lines “I am chosen, not forsaken” and “You are for me, not against me” emphasize the ideas of being selected by God, secure in His care, and assured of His support against life's challenges.
