Set Us Free for Freedom

Lyrics as Poetry

Set us free for freedom,
God of empty tombs!
Open to your sunlight
life in darkened rooms,
and let the life of Jesus,
the breaking out of Jesus,
the rising up of Spirit
set our spirits free!

Free us from our prisons,
open us to grace,
free us from convention
formed by fashion’s face,
and let the life of Jesus
the nonconforming Jesus,
the rising up of Spirit
set our spirits free!

Free us from our cages
holding captive minds,
free us into vision,
light where dogma blinds,
and let the life of Jesus
the wisdom lived in Jesus,
the rising up of Spirit
set our spirits free!

Free us into purpose,
braver and unbowed,
taking others with us,
breaking through the cloud,
and let the life of Jesus
and all who go with Jesus,
the rising up of Spirit
set our spirits free!
