I haven't always been this way
I remember better days
Before the dark one came
And wrapped my soul in chains
Now I live among the dead
Fighting voices in my head
Being consumed by the one who stole my mind
Hoping someone hears me crying in the night
and carries me away
to a better day
finds me crying in the rain
Who is this man that comes my way?
The dark one shrieks and screams His name.
Is this the One they say will set the captives free?
Jesus, rescue me!
Set me free
of the chains holding me.
Set me free.
Is anybody out there hearing me?
As Jesus Christ comes to me,
the darkness ceases to be
I lift my chains; He holds the key.
All power on heaven and earth belongs to Thee.
He rescues me.
I am set free.
His child I will gladly be.
Thank you God for saving me.
Thank you for the offer of life
for breaking me free from all of my strife.
God knew me before I was born.
He's taken my yoke; my sins He bore
To adorn them on His cross
because He knew me and knew I was lost.
I'm intelligent but irrelevant without Him.
Without Him, my identity would be in sin.
A slate covered in shame
A vandalized masterpiece without a name
Now got Christ got Christ up in my system
So I live the great commission
He tells me I've gotta go
I've got a seed I need to sow
Pray for vegetation
Revive a holy nation
All for God's glory
Are our unique stories
Stories creating connections of worthless endeavors
All made into one common body by the loving Savior
He overcame the grave so we could be with Him forever
but one thing we must remember
that He did not make us better
He took what was expired
And made us new
Praise God for saving me and for saving you.
