Completely Free

Broken and poured out for the love of His creation
God paid a debt that He didn't owe
Bearing my pain for not one was His equal
And wearing my shame so that I could know him

He gave us all He had to give
So that we could truly live
So let's give all we have to Him
So that we can be completely free

And as they placed the thorns on His brow
As they drove the nails into His hands and His feet
He looked past the moment
To where we are now
And gave us the victory
From what seemed His defeat

He said here's my body
It's broken in two
Here is my blood let it cover you
All that I have is now yours to receive
Payment in full so that you could be free

Oh without a doubt completely
So that we can be completely free

I love these lyrics. This was the song that was played in Me and Jonas' wedding during our first communion as husband and wife, so needless to say it has a connection with my heart due to that, but the lyrics that are put so simply remind me today of the sacrifice, the true love, and freedom that the cross brings to us. Like Bird said in her blog today, "Because of this day, we as sinners, are able to receive grace, mercy, and salvation. Pretty freakin' awesome." I concur...pretty awesome. The cross = freedom. Freedom in Christ to be yourself and receive his grace that covers you.
