Romans 7:24-25
Words & Music by Mark Wavle

Over the edge I fall down
Beautiful, perilous, dangerous, obvious
I did not heed the signs
This canyon yawns in front of me
How could I not see the ledge at my feet
Blinded by my vain conceit
I fall down…down, down, down

Chorus
Chained again to what I hate to love
Here I come again; oh Father, forgive me;
Daddy, forgive me
Shackled hands up, head down; You free me,
You hold me close
Shackled hands up, head down; You free me,
You hold me close
I’m chained again…to my love

Rising in me, burning, burning
How could he say that?
Why would she do that?
My mind in motion
And anger runs me, I should not let
From my mouth come things I regret
Tangled words, they tie me down
I look up

Right now I know that You love me
And I will not turn to fill my need
You draw me in Your warm embrace
Now I’m chained again…to my love
Now I’m free again; oh Father You love me;
Daddy You love me
Lifted hands up, knees down; You draw me,
You hold me close
Lifted hands up, knees down; You draw me,
You hold me close
I’m chained again…to my love
Chained again…to my love
