"A Choice For Freedom"

“A Choice For Freedom”

I need to sing for the joy God has given me
I need to scream at all the pain I feel inside
I need to laugh at the irony of being scorned by my enemies
I need to cry and wash away the walls that cause me to hide

I make a choice to stand for freedom
I laugh and spread my arms out to God
I reach out past the shell that holds me
And walk in Heaven hand in hand with God

Release doesn’t come in the stillness that holds me
And I’ll never know freedom if I don’t break out of this shell
I’ll never see Heaven if I don’t let myself touch the ones around me
If I never hold to God’s grasp, I’ll never be released from the bonds of Hell
