Poem: “Where the Spirit of the Lord is…”

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is…”

This is from one of my favorite songs, “Freedom Reigns” by Jason Upton.


“Where the Spirit of the Lord is….”
“There is Freedom!”  is the phrase.
“Jesus reigns in this place!”
and I give Him all my praise!
For I was so devastated…
and He covered me with mercy and grace.
I was so broken…
then He rescued me from abusers in my face.
He protected me…
when I could not protect myself.
He provided for me…
when I was again broken on a shelf.
He spoke to me…
when I was in hopeless despair.
He gave me “bread crumbs”…
to follow Him through a world not fair.
He has given me hope,
with a vision for my future.
For together…
We will rescue others from their abuser.
He has called me…
to speak out against abuse.
For I gave Him my life…
and submitted to His use.
His Army is now rising…
and Freedom is what we declare!
For where the Spirit of the Lord is…
Freedom is in the air!
Whatever is holding you down,
Be loosed in Jesus’ name!
For when you get in His presence…
nothing will ever be the same!
