Prisoner Set Free

Jesus, You came to visit me
When I was locked within despair
Sin slammed shut the door forever
I was truly a prisoner there

Jesus, again You looked in on me
Touched my infirmity and pain
Brought on by rejecting You
And You turned my heart again

You knocked with importunity
Until I gladly opened wide
To Your cleansing and forgiveness
And invited You inside

No longer is life a prison
With my sin sick soul inside
Jesus threw away the chains and bars
Since I choose in Him to abide

Great poem. It is my wish that every person would come to know the joy and freedom that our Lord offers. I pray that your words would touch the hearts of those that have not been set free. Keep writing!
