Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You
You broke the chains, now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You

In the corners of my mind I just can't seem to find
A reason to believe that I can break free
'Cause You see I have been down for so long

Feel like all hope is gone
But as I lift my hands, I understand
That I should praise You through my circumstance

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You
You broke the chains, now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You

Everything that could go wrong
All went wrong at one time
So much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gon' lose my mind

But I know You wanna see
If I will hold on through these trials
But I need You to lift this load
'Cause I can't take it no more

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You
You broke the chains, now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You

Been through the fire and the rain
Bound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain so let me go

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You
You broke the chains, now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You
You broke the chains, now I can lift my, lift my hands
I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You

[Incomprehensible]
I just wanna praise You, I just wanna praise You
Now that I can lift my hands
I'm gonna praise You, I'm gonna praise You

    These lyrics are for several of our friends that are facing tough situations right now....gets hard when we're faced with uncertainty day after day of how a situation is going to turn out...heard this song on the radio this morning and it helped take some of the weight off that I'm carrying around and put me in a different frame of mind. :)
