  I was a slave, You said, "Be free" 

To be the greatest, You say “be the least”

You're living water, You say “drink for free”

We ask for purpose, You say “come follow me”

We hope for mercy, You say “here's all you need” 

 

To truly live, You say that I must drown

Where life was lost, You say there I was found

We shout for grace, You say Your Kingdom comes

We take one step, You say the Father runs

 

You reached through my darkness, to pull me in 

You stood in my place and became my sin

To these dead bones, You say, arise, arise

 

When I couldn't do it, You crossed the distance

Your love pushed harder than my resistance

I was a slave, You said, be free

 

I chose my shackles, You spoke liberty

I crucified You, You chose to pardon me

When shame is calling, You tell me I'm Your son

Death tried to hold You, You said, no I'm not done

 

Hallelujah – Grace it found me

Hallelujah – Love outran me

 

You said, “You don’t have to hold onto what you’re doing

You don’t have to be afraid anymore.

I’m calling life into your dead bones;

I’m calling life into your heart.

I want the best for you. Oh, I want the best for you.

Because I love you.

Oh, I want you. Oh, I adore you.

I think you’re beautiful.

I made you.

I think you’re beautiful.”
