Freedom From Bondage
How do we win this battle,
From bondage then break free?
How do we gain the love of One
To fill the heart's deep plea?
The difference...so subtle,
But mighty the reward,
For flesh can never pay the price,
God's love we can't afford.
In humility we must accept
What we can never earn,
For righteous acts can't bridge the gap,
The love for which we yearn.
So we must focus on the One
Who died our debt to pay,
For only by His sacrifice
Will bondage flee away.
And once we know we're truly loved
No matter what we do,
We reach out to embrace the One
Whose power brought us through.
"Have-to's" become "want-to's",
We simply please not earn,
For held securely in His love
The pow'r to please we learn.
Romans 7:14-Romans8:4 (New Living Translation)
