      About "Free"

      Lyrics for Steven Curtis Chapman - "Free"

      Isaiah 42:5-7; Jn. 8:31-36; Rom. 8:38-39

      The sun was beating down inside
      The walls of stone and razor wire
      As we made our way across the prison yard
      I felt my heart begin to race
      As we drew nearer to the place
      Where they say that death
      Is waiting in the dark
      The slamming doors of iron
      Echoed through the halls
      Where despair holds life
      Within its cruel claws

      But then I met a man
      Whose face seemed so
      Strangely out of place
      A blinding light of hope
      Was shining in his eyes
      And with repentance in his voice
      He told me of his tragic choice
      That led him to this place
      where he must pay the price

      But then his voice grew strong
      As he began to tell
      About the one he said
      Had rescued him from Hell, he said

      I'm free, yeah, oh,
      I have been forgiven
      God's love has taken off my chains,
      And given me these wings
      And I am free, yeah, yeah
      And the freedom I've been given
      Is something that not even
      Death can take away from me
      Because I'm free
      Jesus set me free

      We said a prayer and said good-bye,
      And tears began to fill my eyes
      As I stepped back out into the blinding sun
      And even as I drove away I found
      That I could not escape
      The way he spoke of what
      The grace of God had done
      I thought about how sin
      Had sentenced us to die
      And how God gave His only Son
      So you and I could say

      I'm free, yeah, oh,
      I have been forgiven
      God's love has taken off my chains,
      And given me these wings
      And I am free, yeah, yeah
      And the freedom I've been given
      Is something that not even
      Death can take away from me
      Because I'm free
      Jesus set me free

      And if the Son has set you free
      Oh if the Son has set you free
      Than you are free indeed,
      Oh, you are really free

      If the Son has set you free
      Oh if the Son has set you free
      Than you are free, really, really free, oh

      We're free, yeah,
      Oh we have been forgiven
      God's grace has broken every chain,
      And given us these wings

      And we're free, yeah,
      and the freedom we've been given
      Is something that not even
      death can take from you and me

      Because we're free, yeah
      and the freedom I've been given
      Is something that not even
      death can take away from me

      Because we're free
      We are free, we are free
      The Son has set us free
      If the Son has set you
      You are free indeed
