Freedom and Independence
Many a man sits captive and bound,
Because they resist the light they have found.
Many a man sits in a prison of dark,
His choice to stay unrepentant and stark.
Many a man wants to be happy and free,
But won’t walk the path that leads them to me.
Freedom and independence lays before men,
A gift I have sent to save and guide them.
My life for theirs, their pain I took,
Yet they refuse; my gift forsook.
To cleanse and set free, I bleed from every pore,
My offering divine that men might be more.
Yet in their prison, they stay within,
The key on the inside living with them.
My voice beckons all; come follow me,
Break out of your prison, you can be free!
The weight of pride blocking their way,
They look at the key but stubbornly stay.
Yes many a man could truly have more,
If they would choose faith and open the door!
