Free Indeed

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.”

John 8:32
