Freedom’s not what we perceive
an open door to come and leave,
nor is it a “right” to live in ease
and always fly just as we please.
As many know, who own those wings
that lofty height no freedom brings.
For empty hearts are bound to sin
and prison bars have hemmed them in.
Lies are the bars that fence us in
guideposts on the road to sin,
made up of fears, offense, and rights,
that hold us in the dark of night.
When by our side there is One Who gave
His very life our soul to save,
Who holds the keys, Who is the Door
to give us freedom, life, and more.
His name is Truth. He is the Way,
His love the very light of day.
We’ve but to yield, to bow the knee,
then Truth comes in and sets us free.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I AM the Way, the Truth
and the Life; no man can come to the Father
but through Me.’” John 14:6
“…and you shall know the Truth
and the Truth shall set you free.”
