Forgiven and Free
God has equipped me with strength,
so I may walk blameless with Him.
He has given me cause and desire,
For my heart to sing praise to Him.
He called me out of the darkness,
That I may reflect His love and mercy.
He took my sins and made me clean,
I will testify so all the world may see.
The Lord dwells within my heart,
Exalted is the God of my salvation.
The love of the Lord protects me;
As His child I belong to His Holy nation.
God has given to me a purpose,
To show others what He’s done for me.
He is my sacrifice; He paid the price;
That I may live for Him, forgiven and free.
