Set Us Free for Freedom

Set us free for freedom,				 
God of empty tombs!				 
Open to your sunlight
life in darkened rooms,
    and let the life of Jesus,
	the breaking out of Jesus,
	  the rising up of Spirit
	      set our spirits free!
									
Free us from our prisons,
open us to grace,					
free us from convention
formed by fashion's face,
     and let the life of Jesus
       the nonconforming Jesus,
	   the rising up of Spirit
	      set our spirits free!
	
Free us from our cages
holding captive minds,
free us into vision,
light where dogma blinds,
   	and let the life of Jesus
   	  the wisdom lived in Jesus,
   	    the rising up of Spirit
               set our spirits free!
	
Free us into purpose,
braver and unbowed,
taking others with us,
breaking through the cloud,
   	and let the life of Jesus
           and all who go with Jesus,
	     the rising up of Spirit
	       set our spirits free!
