At birth, we don’t understand what being free is
When we’re young, our choices are limited; and
We depend on our upbringing to understand the world
It’s when we find God that our eyes are open as we totally become His.
Then we learn the price He paid to set us free
His choice was made from the beginning of time
It costs Him everything and everyone
Still He came and now the victory is won
He suffered, He was bruised, ridiculed, and beaten
He was laughed at and mosttimes lived alone
Betrayed and abandoned, He was left on His own
Still He came out of love to give a freedom we could never have
I may never understand God’s great love for all mankind
I can never understand the full price of what it cost to redeem us
I can only imagine how high the stakes were to be in His army
And I also understand and know that freedom is not free.
