Lyrics

THE REASON I’M FREE
KERRY PATRICK CLARK

With passage to the new world on a sailing ship
She boarded with one child one prayer one dream
To stand upon a shore where no one else had been
She said I do this for my child and me
My son she said you may not understand
You only need to trust and believe

CHORUS
Freedom lives because men have died
Know that I will never leave your side
Hear these words my child remembering
Love is the reason I’m free

It was for maybe more than shelter he crawled into church
His homeless hands were making up his bed
When he saw an old man on the altar steps
The old man turned around and said
My son this is a house of prayer and peace
Know the truth and it will set you free

CHORUS
Freedom lives because one man died
Know that Jesus never leaves your side
Hear these words my son remembering
Love is the reason I’m free

Feel my flesh see my blood drink from me when you’re thirsty
I have come to teach you love go in peace and in mercy

He said unto the Pharisees of little faith
Come follow me and you won’t walk through dark
You are only speaking for yourself they said
How are we to prove what’s in your heart
If you obey he said come follow me
Knw the truth and it shall set you free

CHORUS
Freedom lives because I will die
Know my father never left my side
Hear these words my friends remembering
Love is the reason I’m free
