In the land of the free
So many are living in chains
All around us is fear
We push and we pull
In our longings for love
Here in the home of the brave
But in the real world right now
You're weary you're weak from the fight
Hope is calling out loud
Your freedom is waiting
Run into the light
Leaving the darkness behind
CHORUS
The city of refuge is open tonight
Come inside, come on inside
A fortress of healing
Where the weary can hide
Come inside, come on inside
Calling the hurting, the broken and bruised
Jesus is waiting for you,
In the city of refuge
Come and rest in this place
'Cause right here is where you belong
It's a shelter of grace
Welcome one, welcome all
REPEAT CHORUS
Before another moment passes you by come on in,
Why are you standing outside?
REPEAT CHORUS
