Christ Broke My Chains

He Set Me Free

 

You broke my chains to set me free

I now have hope because I believe

 

I believe in Jesus, He is the Christ

He is the perfect Lamb that was sacrificed

 

His Blood was spilled on that tree

He died on the cross to set me free

 

He conquered death over the grave

Three days later to life He was raised

 

He ascended to Heaven to sit on His throne

Heaven is the place we now call home

 

He called me out of darkness into the light

He gave me His Spirit to help in this fight

 

When I stumble and when I fall

I know His voice when He calls

 

When I make mistakes and my sin sticks out

He’s always there to show me a different route

 

I want my desires to match His ways

So, on this path I will not stray

 

I now have hope because I believe

Christ Broke My Chains

 He set me Free

Up Against A Wall

When struggles arise where shall I turn

I lean on Gods Spirit or my desires will churn

It’s His Holy Spirit that is my defense

Whether up against a wall or backed into a fence

He is the strength that carries me thru

When my thoughts run rampant and are askew

He provides freedom from the bondage of sin

Thank God for His Spirit who now lives within

I’m now a disciple and try to follow Gods Word

It’s His message of grace, I hope you have heard

Jesus came from heaven to walk with mankind

He came to save souls and to leave no one behind

He walked as a man for three and a half years

To tell His message of grace for all that will hear

He was the ransom for sin and died on the cross

To save me and you and all who are lost

Now walk in the Spirit and walk in His ways

Stay on Gods path and try not to stray

Be the new creature that you have become

Watch your evil desires and do not succumb

Life following Jesus is better you see

Submit to God, resist the devil and he’ll flee

James 4:7

Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he’ll flee.

The Lord is with me wherever I go

Whether wading thru water, quicksand or snow

No matter the valley, no matter the peak

My Lord words are true, for it’s me He will seek

 

There’s been a time or two where I’ve strayed away

Then found myself lost with nowhere to stay

These are the times that I thought are so rough

These are the times when I’ve tried to be tough

 

These are the time where I saw no way out

These are the times I did nothing but doubt

My Lord extended mercy, for He extended me grace

For He gave me all I need to run this very race

 

He even reached down to take my little hand

To lead me across the river into the promise land

My Lord will go before me where ever I go

For He will never leave me for this I now know

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Love came from heaven to walk the earth

It was all who’s lost He came to search

 

He was beaten bloody, bruised black and blue

Hung on the cross meant for me and you

 

It is His message that changes our heart

It is His Spirit that He imparts

 

It’s His grace that’s free for all

A response is needed with the call

 

A new creation is what we are

He set the standard, He raised the bar

 

Our walk with Christ is paramount

It is the cost that we must count

 

A humble heart is our goal

We belong now to God’s fold

 

It’s His grace we can’t earn

For this is the message we must learn

 

If you’re broken or lost or can’t find your way

Jesus is the answer for everyday

For most of my life I hadn’t a care

I wore a mean mask that put on a scare

I was guided by the bondage of fear

That developed over many a year

Hardship and heartache led to choices that were flawed

Leading me to wonder, is there a God

Pushing thru life without any rest

My choices and decisions were skewed at best

Toiling and turning was the event of the day

Always leaving me to wonder is there another way

Sobering up I got squeaky clean

But never got rid of the mask that was mean

It wasn’t until I invited Him in

That I was freed from the bondage of sin

What I received was forgiveness and grace

That day on the cross Christ took my place

I’m a new creation the old life is gone

This new life I live with no mask on

I was lost and broken all inside

Had twisted emotions that I couldn’t hide

I was all alone with no friends in sight

Being cornered in a field, I had to fight

It was two on one the odds stacked high

I thought they were my friends, I tried to ask why

The betrayal that I felt was more than I could stand

It seemed to me they were guided by satan’s hand

The wind was blowing, it was cold and brisk

When all of a sudden my face caught a fist

We tossed and turned and fell to the ground

The other boy jumped in so we went for a round

All of a sudden a bystander stopped by

She broke up the fight before they could ask why

This was a day I sent a prayer up to God

I asked what was wrong with me and why I was flawed

I don’t know if He answered, I really don’t know

My spirit was telling, telling me to go

Where was I to go, what was I to do

I was so lost and feeling so blue

I had no place to go, I couldn’t go home

I was stuck in this world and felling all alone

I eventually got thru that one lonely day

From then I feared people and kept them at arms bay

From then on I kept to myself

For fear that no one could help

This happened when I was young

Having few friends hurt and stung

But I eventually grew up and moved on

It’s now a memory that has since gone

Lord, it’s me again

It’s against You that I have sinned

Lord, to You I confess

I give You all my brokenness

Oh Lord, what shall I do

I want to give my life to You

But something always gets in the way

Oh Lord, please help me not to stray

 

Lord, I give You all of me

Take away my blindness so that I can see

Oh Lord, where I am weak

It’s Your face that I need help to seek

Lord, in my emptiness

Fill me with all Your goodness

In my emptiness, weakness, and where I am broken

It’s only in You that I have hope in

 

Lord, it’s me again

I have confessed to You all my sin

I know it’s You that will forgive

Then teach me how I am to live

It’s only You that can help me start

Lord, I know it’s You that changed my heart

Lord, it’s You to whom I pray

I know You’re the only way
