Steve started this off with the beautiful melody. Next Larry added the lyrics for the first verse and chorus to get us started. Steve and I added further lyrics and it just grew from there. Steve created the midi file. - Elton, April 14, 1999

(Short Introduction)

(Verse One)
Almighty Father,
You are the reason I live.
I'll praise You forever,
Praise You for all that You give:
Grace without measure,
And love beyond compare.
I cried for mercy,
And Lord, You were there!

(Chorus 1)
No longer enslaved,
No longer alone:
You gave me new life,
And a place in Your home.
All praises to You,
Oh, Father above.
You made me Your child,
And I rejoice in Your love!

(Verse 2)
Beautiful Savior,
Giving Your life in my place.
How can I thank You
You bore my sin and disgrace.
Giving so freely,
The world You came to heal;
Bringing salvation
And hope that is real.

(Chorus 2)
No longer enslaved,
No longer alone:
You gave me new life,
And a place in Your home.
All praises to You,
Oh, Savior above.
You saved me by grace,
And I rejoice in Your love!

(Instrumental Bridge, 10 Measures)
(Modulate a half step)

(Verse 3)
Comforting Spirit,
Giving me strength for each day.
Dwelling within me,
Showing me truth as I pray.
If I will listen,
Your voice is always there.
If I will follow,
Great joy you will share.

(Chorus 3)
No longer enslaved,
No longer alone:
You gave me new life,
And a place in Your home.
All praises to You,
Oh, Spirit above.
You dwell in my heart,
And I rejoice in Your love!

All praises to You,
Oh, great God above.
I live by Your grace,
And I rejoice... in Your love!
