THE PRISONER

I KNOW THAT THERE IS A DEVIL,
FOR HIS DEMONS HAD ME IN CHAINS.
I WAS A PRISONER OF SIN AND TORMENT
THAT STARTED OUT AS AN INNOCENT GAME.

MY HANDS WERE TIED BEHIND ME WITH
HANDCUFFS MADE OF STEEL.
THIS LIFE WAS ONE BIG QUESTION MARK.
MY NIGHTMARE WAS VERY REAL.

I WANTED TO RUN JUST AS FAST AS I COULD,
TO WHERE I DID NOT KNOW.
HOPING TO ESCAPE HELL’S FIRE
AND FIND SHELTER AWAY FROM THIS FOE.
THROUGH MY JOURNEY INTO DARKNESS,
I FELT A HAND REACH OUT TO ME.

HE SAID THAT HE WAS MY SAVIOUR
AND THAT ONLY HIS BLOOD
COULD SET ME FREE.
HE PROMISED TO PROTECT ME AND KEEP
ME FROM ALL HARM,
CLOTHE ME WITH HIS RIGHTEOUSSNESS,
AND GIVE MY HEART A SONG.

HE HANDED ME THE BOOK OF LIFE,
AND HIS WORDS WERE VERY CLEAR,
“ THIS IS MY PLAN FOR ALL OF MANKIND,
YOU’LL FIND YOUR WAY IN HERE.”
