Father, thank you that your redeemer was determined to secure an inheritance for your people regardless of how it might impair him. Thank you that your steadfast love was shown to your people through this redeemer and that those who were once counted dead have been given life. You have brought about restoration, peace and security for your people. Lord, we rejoice with those who first saw the great hope of redemption woven into the line of David, and all the more that we have seen it come to ultimate fruit in Jesus. In him we receive everlasting life beyond death, true peace with you, and complete restoration into an inheritance from you that will never fade. Make us into a group who sings his great praise and rejoices in Christ our redeemer.
