Free to Love by Raymond A. Foss
No longer slave, no longer captive
free from the judgment
of sin and death.
No longer under the law;
by grace alone redeemed
a sacrifice of love, our debts forever paid.
Free to love, so we should be
our lives for one another,
not for worldly gain alone.
Free to care, for our brother, for our sister,
making their way easier, their loads lighter;
we are following His example,
our servant king, our Savior, our Lord.
