Set Me Free

Set Me Free: Casting Crowns (Lifesong)

It hasn't always been this way
I remember brighter days
Before the dark ones came
Stole my mind
Wrapped my soul in chains


Now I live among the dead
Fighting voices in my head
Hoping someone hears me crying in the night
And carries me away


Set me free of the chains holding me
Is anybody out there hearing me?
Set me free


Morning breaks another day
Finds me crying in the rain
All alone with my demons I am
Who is this man that comes my way?
The dark ones shriek
They scream His name
Is this the One they say will set the captives free?
Jesus, rescue me


As the God man passes by
He looks straight through my eyes
And darkness cannot hide


Do you want to be free?
Lift your chains
I hold the key
All power on Heav'n and Earth belong to me

You are free
You are free
You are free

Well, is is 25 days now?
My husband is going out of town from Wednesday until Sunday. When I think that I will miss him for that small amount of time, I can't imagine what it must be like for you. I have been lurking on your blog for a while and I know that it is hard for you at times.
I admire you for your strength and courage.

I didn't recognize the lyrics to the song, they're really good. Thanks for sharing. I shared a song today that made me think of you. Hugs, Bethany

We LOVE Casting Crowns. They were my son's favorite group. The lead singer.. (Mark Hall) called Brent once. (Some friends contacted him and told him Brent's story) They're GREAT folks! Just too hard to listen to their music anymore..

Anyway.. I'm glad you redirected me. I'll know where to find you most often. ;-)

Have a GREAT day!
Love,
Tonya
