You Set My Heart Free

I used to think the rules were there
To save me from my freedom and make me good
To keep my feelings in their place, and never let my will escape
To never choose, but just obey – I thought surrender was that way.

I used to think that freedom meant to leave the trail and wander by myself
To make my way through the weeds – let my feelings take the lead
What to do, how to be – it would all be up to me.

I have longed to be free, so I have run, I’ve run, I’ve run
I’ve run, I’ve run.

But now I know that to follow you I must be free
And to be free I must follow
You made me free so I could choose if I want to follow you
Your will will always set me free so I can truly become me.

You set my heart free, and so I run, I run, I run
in the path you set for me
I run, I run in the path you set for me.

In early spring I saw a river in the sun – that’s what I have become
Bits of ice breaking loose – as the water starts to move
Rushing on between the shores – that keep the rapids on their course.

You set my heart free, and so I run, I run, I run
in the path you set for me
I run, I run in the path you set for me.

You set my heart free…so I can truly become me.

Based on Psalm 119:32.
