Redeemer

Album: Nicole C. Mullen (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • Nicole C. Mullen wrote in the liner notes of Wow #1 Hits: "'Redeemer' was inspired by the scripture passage in the (Old Testament Book of) Job of when, while under his afflictions, Job stooped and said, 'I know that my redeemer lives and at the last day, He will stand upon the Earth.' And how he was going to see God with his eyes and in his flesh- not another but He himself. How powerful- that regardless of what we go through, regardless of what the world tells us- that we can stand up with our shoulders back and our head straight and forward and say, 'I know that I know that my Redeemer lives in spite of what I'm going through, in spite of what I've seen or what's going on around me."
  • This won the 2001 Dove Award for Song of the Year. Mullen also won in 1998 for "On My Knees" and she is, to date, the only black performer to win the Dove Song of the Year Award.
