George Jones – He Made Me Free lyrics

I had drifted for so long with my life so full of wrong
That the Lord should have turned his back on me
But He took the trembling hand of a lost and lonely man
Broke the chains from mortal shame and made me free. (He made me free.)

Yes, He took away the sin from my soul where it had been
And He helped my blinding eyes again to see
Oh yes, and now I understand the beauty of salvation's plan
Out on the cross He paid the cost and made me free. (He made me free.)

--- Instrumental ---

I had sunk so deep in shame never calling on His name
All the joys of life had turned to misery
But then He gave me back control of my lost and wandering soul
Removed the fears, dried my tears and made me free. (He made me free.)

Yes, He took away the sin that had stained me deep within
And He gave me back the faith that I might see
Now, I'm so glad I understand the promise of salvations plan
Out on the cross (the cross) He bore the lose (the lose)
And made me free. (He made me free...)
