Rags to Riches

A naked fearsome soul
By demon darkness bound, enslaved
Shackled to a living grave
Under hell’s control.
Who could break his iron bands?
What power could set him free?
There’s One alone at Whose commands
The demon forces must disband
And even death must flee.
Across the storm-tossed sea He came
He stilled its raging waves
To Gadara to proclaim
That Legion bow to Jesus’ name;
The demon-bound He saves.
The naked man is clothed and sane
Set free by Jesus Christ;
He long had known the world’s disdain
Delivered from each bond and chain—
The Word of God sufficed.
The One Who set this captive free
Is the only One Who saves
He’ll calm the wind and raging sea
To rescue lost like you and me
Long shackled to the grave.
From rags to riches by His Word
He hides our nakedness
All we who wretched rags preferred
Stirred to faith by truth we’ve heard
He clothes in righteousness.
Accept Jesus as Your Savior Right Now and be Certain of Eternal Life.
