The Lord Delivered Me

I'm no longer in bondage.
I finally have been set free.
No longer am I crying
Or overcome with grief.

I placed my burdens at the cross,
And the Lord delivered me.
Now here I am smiling
For all the world to see.

Today is a bright new day
And, yes, the sun did shine.
The cloud that hung over me
I no longer can find.

My joy has been restored
And my heart filled with peace.
Out of His great love,
The Lord delivered me.

The feelings of hopelessness,
Sadness and despair
All have been removed
By the answer of a prayer.

The Lord restored my hope
And gave me happiness again.
Out of His great love for me,
He gave me deliverance.

I give Him all the praise
For my strength to overcome
The trials I have endured
When my life came undone.

If the clouds one day return,
I still will have my peace.
I'll call upon the Lord,
And He'll again deliver me.

Do you feel broken?
Are you under a cloud?
Is your heart filled with sadness
And your mind filled with doubt?

Call upon the Lord.
Ask Him to set you free.
The Lord will deliver you
Just as He delivered me.

"The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."   Psalm 34:17-18.
