I've always loved the ethnic feel to this song...

And the lyrics? 
They are so great!
Tell rich and poor in slavery
The King has ordered a decree
Ransom all captivity
Ring the bells of liberty
He sacrificed His everything
To buy us new identities
So every knee could bow
And every tongue confess
That Jesus our Lord is marvelous

So let the redeemed of the Lord, say so
Talk about it, say so, talk talk about it
Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so
Talk about it, say so, talk talk about it

Bangladesh to Bangor Maine
If you're talkin' about His name
Give him glory unashamed
(His love is so excitin')
Say it loud and quietly
Nod your head or disagree
But every knee shall bow
Every tongue confess
That Jesus our Lord is marvelous

So let the redeemed of the Lord, say so
Talk about it, say so, talk talk about it
Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so
Talk about it, say so, talk talk about it

If you're not ashamed
If you're not ashamed

I love how the Living Bible interprets Psalm 107: 2
Has the Lord redeemed you? 
Then speak out! 
Tell others He has saved you from your enemies.
[Don't be ashamed!] 
I drew this directly on the journal page 
[I use an old cookbook, have I shared that?] 
and used markers and a little paint and a 
wonderful chalkboard pen from Stampin' Up.  All songs are from the album below -
I know I've shared before that
the Summer of 2007 was a tough time for us as a family. 
One or both of our parents was hospitalized for 12 weeks --
The Lord gave this album to me to listen to while on the road 
back and forth and back and forth
[and back and forth]
 – and it spoke to my heart. 
I love to listen to it still. 
So I want to share some of my favorites with you this year!
[And hopefully these songs will be an inspiration to you too!]
