Shedding Fetters


I know the way of being free
Loosed of fetters holding me
To this vast temporal plane
But for the silver cord

To fly unhindered in the sky
Perch on windows stories high
And peer o’er land and sea
Without a shred of fear

Glorious is that freedom given
Yet here I am still earthly bidden
To walk these dusty trails
Yearning, longing more for Heaven

Oh! That I could fly just now
Leave behind my burdens downed
Guess what? I can! Lord lift me please
To walk new life while here somehow
