Suggested Tune SHELTERED DALE ( 188.8.131.52.8.6.) [click tune name to play midi]
1. There have been forces in my life
that seemed to break my chains,
but ever kept me powerless
to rise above my shame.
For only One can set me free -
there is but one great Name.
2. Where others saw just nakedness
and filthy mud and shame,
I wallowed in my helplesness
until my Saviour came:
He clothed me in His righteousness;
He understood my pain.
3. Now in my freedom I rejoice
to live by His command,
and though I long for that sweet day
when at His throne I'll stand,
for now I'll llive to witness to
Salvation's mighty hand!
Based on gospel reading for Revised Common Lectionary (C) for 12th Ordinary
