The Lord took me by my shoulders
He shook me until I yielded to heed
That He most certainly remembered me
With demons cringing, as they shuddered
The Lord, He spoke through the madness
He raised a sound like that of true freedom
Then drawing near, He spoke with kindness
Calming my fears and whispering love
The Lord told me what I must do
He caressed my face like a father's love
Commissioning me with urgent truth
"Let it loose and focus on the Above"
I struggled, I knew what He meant
I grew sad as if I was the rich man
His gaze read me deeply and then sent
Conviction that pierced this little human
"You don't have to" they begin to whisper lies
"We'll preserve you the easy way
You can stay here and you shan't die
And in this bondage you shall pave your way"
I stared at the Lord
His eyes gazed to my soul
And I cried out
"Lord, Lord! What am I to let loose?
I try with every way for You
And now, these demons will not release
Me into Your gracious peace!
I want back but they have my throat!
Whatever there is for me to let go
Take it away when I don't know how!"
And with that I fall to His feet in a reverent bow
