Seems like all I can see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this gonna last
Then You look at this prisoner and say to me "son
Stop fighting a fight that's already been won"

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off theses heavy chains
Wipe away every stain now I'm not who I used to be
I am redeemed

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper, "Child lift up your head"
I remember oh God, You're not done with me yet

I don't have to be the old man inside of me
Cause his day is long dead and gone
I've got a new name, a new life I'm not the same
And a hope that will carry me home

    This song when I heard it touch my heart and soul. GOD and Jacob talk to me every time I hear it. This speaks solo much.

    I have lived a very hard life. Now, in my late 50's, i have finally found my way to jesus christ and was baptised today in my church.

    The thing about jesus is that, once you give your heart to him, no matter how half-hearted you may be, he will never abandon you.

    That is what this song means to me. I have been called the same things in this song by my very own family. Now, my family is my church!!

    J*e*s*u*s = he is my star, and i follow his lighted path. There is but only one path, that takes us home. To a kingdom where it's every avenue is lite with the abundance of god's love!
