In the Day that He Broke off my Chains

I was once without a Savior
Without hope, and without life
All my nights were full of fearing
And my days with pain and strife

Then I prayed, and I cried
And in love, He answered me
I was chained, I was tied
But in grace, He set me free

I was purchased by my Savior
And His servant I became
In the day that He broke off my chains


I was chained by fleshly feelings
Sin just wouldn’t let me free
And I knew I couldn’t free myself
But who would rescue me?

Then He came, rescued me
Now I’m free to dance and sing
Now my heart’s filled with glee
I am cherished by my King

So I’m running to my Savior
And I’ve never been the same
Since the day that He broke off my chains


When my life was full of sorrow
And the skies were full of rain
I forgot about His mercy
And complained about my pain

Then He came to explain
And at last, I understood
Blessings come through the rain
He is only ever good

I was suddenly so joyful
Started dancing in the rain
In the day that He broke off my chains


Still it isn’t always easy
Pilgrim trails are often rough
But along this trail He’s shown me
That His grace will be enough

I’ll recall and I’ll tell
Of the times He heard my plea
When I tripped, when I fell
In His grace He lifted me

Then my mouth was filled with laughter
And my tongue with songs of praise
In the day that He broke off my chains

I am a nineteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
