Free (lyrics)

Long my spirit lay with no hope in the darkness
Couldn't see my way through the shadows of night
Then the Saviour came, stepped right into my sorrow
Lifted up my head, filled this dungeon with light

My chains fell off
My heart was free
And I heard the voice of the Risen One call out to me. . .

Rise up, rise up and follow Him
Cast off the heavy weight of sin
And be free
Free indeed
Rise up, rise up and follow Him
Run to the prize that won't grow dim
You are free
Free indeed

Bound and broken one - He is hope in the darkness
Weak and weary one - He's your song in the night
Lost and lonely one - you have not been forgotten
Oh lift up your head, He comes flaming with light

'Tis mercy all
Immense and free
The amazing love of the Risen One calls out to me. . .

Rise up, rise up and follow Him
Cast off the heavy weight of sin
And be free
Free indeed
Rise up, rise up and follow Him
Run to the prize that won't grow dim
You are free
Free indeed

Let every chain be broken
Let every heart be free
The curse of sin and death and hell is crushed beneath His feet


(with inspiration from Charles Wesley's hymn, And Can It Be)
* Acts 12:1-10, Hebrews 12:1-2, Philippians 3:12-14
