There is Freedom



All things were created by Him and for Him  (Col. 2:!6)

There is freedom in the outstretched wings of an eagle.
There is freedom in the stars and the stripes;
There is freedom in one nation under God's guidance;
There is freedom forever in Christ.         

There is freedom in the downpour of rain on the earth;
There is freedom in the ocean wave’s rolling ride;
There is freedom in a river flowing forever onward;
There is freedom forever in Christ.

There is freedom in the blossom of spring’s first flower;
There is freedom in the butterfly’s flitty flight;
There is freedom in the song of the sweet red birds;
There is freedom forever in Christ.  
       
There is freedom in the first steps out of a dungeon;
There is freedom in allowing a caged bird to fly;
There is freedom when any stronghold is broken,
There is freedom forever in Christ.

There is freedom in the all-out race of an athlete;
There is freedom in the dancer’s twirl of graceful might;
There is freedom in performing any God –given talent;
There is freedom forever in Christ.

There is freedom in bellowing out a favorite love song;
There is freedom in one long blubbering cry;
There is freedom in gut-wrenching, knee-slapping laughter with a friend;
There is freedom forever in Christ.

There is freedom in a hammock beneath a thriving shade tree;
There is freedom in a screen porch with a chair, rocking, inside;
There is freedom in a lazy, old, painted bench swing;
There is freedom forever in Christ.

There is freedom in a newborn’s first plea for a start on this earth;
There is freedom in finding God’s call for one's life;
There is freedom in a believer’s last breath that he takes;
There is freedom forever in Christ.
