Freedom from the Chains of Sin

Christ came to set us free from the slavery of our sin. Come, take a breath of grace and live in the freedom of love. There is nowhere else that true joy can be found.

Freedom from the Chains of Sin

I never knew my legs were chained,
Because my heart was quite enthralled
By all the hidden crannies here,
Within the prison walls.

But then when someone called my name
I took a step, and then I fell,
Enslaved by chains of sin and guilt,
Within the prison walls—

But when a hand I could not see
Removed the chains, and I was free,
With joy I watched the walls fall down,
And shouted out with glee—

I’m free! I run the fields of joy,
And love is shining on my face;
I’m following my Savior,
And breathe the air of grace.
