Bound by Grace

I once was there too,
thinking I was so free
thinking that nothing on earth
would ever bind me

Thinking that freedom was just one choice away
to do what I pleased, what I wanted
In any place and any time of day

I was so sure that no one could see
the fear, the shame,
The shackles that bound me
All the while convincing myself
I don’t need anyone..no..no not me

I once was there too,
Demanding and certain
Saying, “if you only knew”
the pain behind this curtain
The past I was consumed by,
the time I spent searching

Then it all happened
, I heard His voice,
a hand lifting my head
“I have given you this choice”
trust and believe the things you have read

Oh and, I have paid for you
to walk this way instead

The Cross was the means
of a price paid to be free

His voice was so clear
as He spoke it to me

It is Grace you are bound to
As soon as you believe
It is Grace you are bound to
for you to fully cleave

Now, Please look and please see
it is not shackles that bind me
I am bound by grace the world can not perceive

I do not deserve it,
Oh no..no not me
there was no work burdened on me
I simply receive
what has already been done
I simply rest
cause the battle’s already been won

Our Savior, our King
Came once and for all
to redeem and to bring
To save us form the fall

But not only that, do you see what you read
He saved us from the shackles
of being bound to well….”me”

I don’t have to be bound
to this thing called the flesh
I don’t have to be bound
to being a mess

I am free
I am free don’t you see
because it is Grace that surly binds me!!

…Romans 6:13-14 …do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin
as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those
alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to
God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under
grace.
