Set Me Free!
(Based on Psalm 142)
By Elton Smith and Elizabeth Tolson
CCLI Number: 2522193
I wrote this melody while on vacation and sent it to Elizabeth in Scotland. Elizabeth wrote the wonderful words. I would like to dedicate this song to all the prisoners we met during our concerts. Please visit Elizabeth's site for more original praise songs. - Elton, July 25, 1998
Oh, Lord my God in life's dark prison,
No help is found and so I cry aloud to Thee.
There is no refuge from my past,
Till You bring me home at last,
And I acknowledge it's Your blood which sets me free.
You know the sins and faults which bind me
In this dark prison so I cry aloud to Thee.
You are the refuge from my past,
And You'll bring me home at last,
For I acknowledge it's Your blood which sets me free.
I praise Your name, Oh God, my Saviour,
Because You loved me and You always lifted me.
You changed my sorrow into peace
When this captive found release.
Now from my prison I forever will be free!
