Now I can sing one of my childhood’s favorite songs without feeling bad about the lyrics!
Now it is a love poem and plea to God:

Free me…out of the empty shadow
Slowly…I climb the bright, bright path
Swing, swing…dizzy in Your light
I walk to you and You will run to me!

Oh, free me…beneath this clouded twilight
Lead me…up the ascending flight
See my open hand
Strike up the band and make my soul’s fire dance
Spirit’s so sparkling
So free me…

Free me… out of my broken hard heart
Forgive me…for all my wretched flaws
Bring, bring…bring Your mercy vast
I’ll take the trail marked on Your sacred map!

Oh, free me…beneath this clouded twilight
Lead me…up the ascending flight
See my open hand
Strike up the band and make my soul’s fire dance
Spirit’s so sparkling
So free me…

So free me…

So free me…
