HYMN


Released From Captivity

Our God, in Christ, released us from captivity,
From slavery to sin, He sets the captive free.
The Lord sheds His own light upon all human hearts;
For those who won't respond, God's radiance soon departs

So many like to claim an inner righteousness,
But God has told us all, there's nothing good in us.
The human flesh, that strong, deceptive, wicked force,
That whitewashed human heart still charts an evil course.

The human flesh is caught in slavery to sin.
It cannot free itself, nor break the trap it's in.
But only through the Christ, there is no other way,
So only through the Christ, our night is turned to day.

The flesh is so corrupt, it cannot be reformed,
But yielding to Christ, a miracle performs.
Yet those who will not yield, with great hypocrisy,
Not knowing that they're lost, remain in slavery.

All those who yield their wills and listen to God's voice,
Are led of God in love in ever deepening choice.
Our God, in Christ, released us from captivity,
From slavery to sin, He sets the captive free.
