(For All Who Are In Bondage)

CHORUS:  We are free in Jesus.   Free from death, fear and shame
Christ has paid our ransom.  Raised us up, now to live for Him.

1)    Serving one true Master. He called us by name.
Cherished, loved and treasured.  Covered by His grace.
We have been adopted.  Children of the King.
Chosen, precious, honored.  This is why we sing…  (chorus)

2)    Through these days of darkness we are not alone.
Jesus shares our burdens, shelters us from harm.
All our cares and sorrows, these will fade away.
Blessings for our future, peace and strength,
Peace and strength,  peace and strength today…  (chorus)

Raised us up, now to live for Him

An evangelist in Pakistan tells me that they are
allowed to lead Bible Studies and meet the physical needs
of poor Christians who live in the 'Brick Places' slums
but are forbidden by slave owners from sharing the
Biblical teachings about freedom and human rights.

This song was written while reflecting on the true
God-given freedom and dignity that we have in Christ.

"We Are Called" is another song that challenges us
to lift the burdens of those in need
