Most of others want to be
in charge of their own destiny
Afraid of outcomes and of hurt
Afraid of lessons they might learn
The world says, "break the chains around us!"
I say, "let heaven be what bound us"
Independence from our shame
but slavery to You in Jesus name
Doing only what You do
Moving only when You move
The world says, "I don't care what your plan is,"
I say to You, "permission granted!"
