Do You Wanna Be Free?

Fallen, we’re all fallen
We try so hard to find purity
We try so hard to look pretty
But we flail in the dirt,
Slinging it
And the wind carries it
To lands,
Far away

And our tears,
Turn the dirt into muddy
Rivers of regret.
Our efforts to feel pure again,
To fix what we broke,
To find what has been lost,
Never seem to quite add up,
And, the longing continues.

If we could but see
His outstretched Hand,
His gaze of Love,
His act of Forgiveness,
We would run to Him,
We would not wait,
For,
He is our Remedy
For the lostness
We find ourselves
In,
He, is our reason
To go on with the act
Of living
For, He is
Ever forgiving,
And, He purifies those,
Who come to Him,
To all who ask.

So many things darken the glass,
They scream lying things
Into our guilt,
They try to make us
Work to be free,
They introduce many things
Into our confusion,
When, He is the only One
Who can ever truly make us free,
Because it is His Work,
And, not ours.

Are you ready to be free?
I can tell you,
It’s like a trillion pounds
Get lifted from your back,
And the air is clearer
When you can stand up
Straight.
The trick is this
And it’s really no trick
At all…
He is freedom
He is rest
We cease our work to earn it
Because, He paid the price.
Then, we serve because we love Him,
And, not because we are still
Trying to dig our way
Out of the miry clay.
In Messiah is freedom!
Glorious Freedom!

Do you dare to believe?
Do you dare to ask?

Are you ready to be free?

Do You Wanna Be Free?
