He saw there was no justice
Our lives were in despair
His children lived in darkness
And He could not leave us there
We stumbled around blindly
We made only animal sounds
There was no one among us
Who could turn everything around
His loved moved Him to action
Salvation on our behalf
To those who stood for injustice
They were forced to face His wrath
Light for those in darkness
Living Word for those who groan,
As Jesus, our redeemer
Gave His life and gained the throne.
We watch with admiration
His loving sacrifice we see
And through our grateful worship
We hear Him say “follow me”.
Step boldly into injustice
On behalf of those without a voice
I’ve given you my own heart
But you’ll still need to make a choice
Know that I am with you,
The source of all you need.
It’s not your job to break the chains
Simply announce – they have been freed.
