Chainbreaker

Christ left His Father’s throne to come to us in grace
He put on flesh and the fires of suffering He faced
He is the second Adam who came to Adam’s dust
He came to rescue every one who would in Him trust

My spirit lay in darkness in a tomb of fantasy
Dead to the truth, dead to the light, dead to eternity
He is the resurrection, He is creation’s  source
And now he bleeds for sin-sick souls that repent in remorse

Now there’s holy jubilation in God’s presence
There is holy jubilation in my heart
To every contrite sinner who comes and who repents
The chainbreaker will give a brand new start

Out of the tomb He called me, out of the tomb I rose
Born as a new creation arrayed in righteous clothes
And so among death’s darkness the living have no place
Called from the tomb we now cast off the chains broken by grace

Now there’s holy jubilation in God’s presence
There is holy jubilation in my heart
To every contrite sinner  who comes and who repents
The chainbreaker will give a brand new start

Bridge
Chains of death once had bound
Me in a helpless hopeless state
I was surely lost but now I’m found
Set free, set apart, and set straight

Now there’s holy jubilation in God’s presence
There is holy jubilation in my heart
To every contrite sinner  who comes and who repents
The chainbreaker will give a brand new start
