Freedom

by Alvin Kelly

God grant me freedom
On this very day
Give me the understanding
Of all that I read
Show me the peace of mind
That only you can
God grant me the freedom
For I'm just a man

Now freedom doesn't
Necessarily mean
Outside walking
Amongst all the trees
There's freedom from bondage
And iniquity
Well have faith in Jesus
Is all that you need

They locked me in solitary
They took away all my rights
But they can not take away
My Jesus Christ
For He lives inside of me
And guides me each day
God grant me freedom
On this very day
