Totally Free

When you can walk away from debate, though you know you are right
When you resist the urge to fight, though you have the right
When you pick your battles and weigh the outcome
When your weapons aren't words, but God's wisdom


You'll know you are free from the devil's snare
You'll lift up your countenance and see God there

When you accept the fact that you don't know it all
When you admit to being wrong without having to fall
When you know that you have no power over others
When you risk being honest with one another

You'll know you are free from the devil's snare
You'll lift up your countenance and see God there

When you no longer have the urge to compete
When you lay aside anger and evil deceit
When you don't need to have the very last word
When you let the other's voice be the last one heard

You'll know you are free from the devil's snare
You'll lift up your countenance and see God there

When all that matters is God's perfect name
When you quit trusting others and playing their game
When your heart can be broken and scattered abroad
When you can love through the love of God

You'll know you are free from the devil's snare
You'll lift up your countenance and see God there

When you know you can not change the other's will
By changing their minds through manipulative skill
When you know only God can change the heart
When you yield your treasure to God from the start

You'll know you are free from the devil's snare
You'll lift up your countenance and see God there

When you obey God though no one is on your side
When you lay down your rights and lay down your pride
A heavy load will lift from your chest
You'll find true freedom is the very best
