Now I'm living in Redemption and settling down, on a street called Forgiveness, in a quiet little town. Thank God for the peace that I have found, in this place called Redemption, my new home town!

About the song
Once you understand the forgiveness that is yours through the redemptive blood of Christ that was shed for you, you will never be the same. It's kind of like moving to a new town and starting your life all over again, with a fresh, clean slate. That's the message I tried to convey through this song.
Lyrics
WELCOME TO REDEMPTION
Running from myself down the wrong road
Tired of carrying around this heavy load
Waking up wondering where I’ve been
Looking in the mirror thinking not again

Searching for the answer in the next town
Just setting up myself for another let down
Not sure what it is that I’m wanting to find
But one thing I know, I’m running out of time

Around the next curve on the side of the road
Stood a big old sign with letters bright and bold
“Welcome to Redemption, We’re Glad You’re Here”
I stopped and stared through eyes filled with tears

Into the sunset at the end of the day
I turned down a street called “A Better Way”
I passed a little church with a big welcome sign
And thought to myself, maybe it’s time

Chorus
Now I’m living in Redemption and settling down
On a street called forgiveness in a quiet little town
Thank God for the peace that I have found
In this place called Redemption, my new home town

Now I look back on the road I was on
And see it’s the one that took me home
To that sign I read, through eyes filled with tears
“Welcome to Redemption, Glad You’re Here”.
