Mom, what does redeemed mean?

While listening to some Good Friday music in the car my daughter asked me the above question. How very wonderful it was to answer her… “you know what Jesus did on that cross? that’s what it means to be redeemed,” was my reply.

From Merriam Webster’s Dictionary
Redeemed: to get or win back
2 : to free from what distresses or harms: as a : to free from captivity by payment of ransom b : to extricate from or help to overcome something detrimental c : to release from blame or debt : CLEAR d : to free from the consequences of sin

His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
There’s nothing more He’d rather hear
Nor so pleasing to His ear
As His favorite song of all

lyrcis from Phillips, Craig and Dean
