Released from all the heaviness...of
Torment's guilt and shame, no more
Condemnation or piling on of blame,
No fret, worry or doubt, the Holy Spirit

Came...working inside a
Mummy bound that couldn't breathe,
Jesus unwound the cloth, and in him
Alone, relief from sin and the curse of

Death, released without regret or sorrow
For tomorrow, the Master's plan reached
Into my heart and set this prisoner free,
In Jesus Christ and Christ alone forever

Redeemed, and the stone that was
Rejected became the chief corner
Stone, always Christ and him alone.

Ephesians 2:19-21 -- Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord.
Galatians 5:1 -- It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery..
