And in that cage of sin undone,
I gave my life to the Fathers Son

Nailed to the limbs of a forsaken tree.
Praising the Lord who has cut my chain,
to the limbs of a desperate pain.
Praising our God who has sent His grace,

As I rise up on an eagles wing.
And as I hold His Loving Hand,
eyes behold the Promise Land
"The Storm of Strife"
There the horizon stretches before me,

I give my life,
Does stand with me through the storm of strife
