It's been handed down for generations
From my grandpa to my dad, on to me
All my life I've been shackled to a bottom
I never knew what it was like to be free

But it's time to break this chain that's been holding me down
Leave it laying on the ground
It's time to make a change, I've caused enough pain
Lord, won't You help me break this chain

I give You thanks for giving me a reason
And a wife with forgiveness in her smile
Oh, I want this two hands to be rock steady
As she's handing me our new born baby child

It's time to break this chain that's been holding me down
Leave it laying on the ground
It's time to make a change, I've caused enough pain
Lord, won't You help me break this chain

It's time to make a change, I'm tired of this pain
Lord, won't You help me break this chain?
You made the sunshine and rain
And You can wash away this pain
Lord, won't You help me break this chain
