Masters have we all.
One is of Glory,
The other from man’s fall.
In pride we say it is ours to decide,
Then proceed in our own will.
But our action is bent towards the one
Who brought us to his wicked call.
Evil is his certain way
With lie and cunning deception your will he does sway.
Towards darkness and the great abyss
He will inch you along the way,
Until with great pride you do stride.
The way you travel seems right
And with little struggle
The way unfolds to your delight.
Beware; there is a toll you must pay,
It will cost all you have ever been or hoped to be
For it will be destroyed along with thee.
It is with this knowledge I come to warn,
As there is hope for all to come and all to see.
We gather in all life’s decisions we three,
The two masters along with me.
One thinks he owns thee,
But the other calls to set you free.
He saw you bound and hopeless
Having a destiny you did not realize,
For even simple truth was hidden from your eyes.
The Master that calls to set You free,
He has pierced the darkness with light so all can see.
The price for our fall He has paid in full He is Mighty and Devine.
Holy and sure He has bought you and set you free,
He paid the price in full for you and me.
It was with his blood He paid hanging on that tree,
Doing the will of the Father He suffered for thee.
The Father raised him on the third day,
A miracle for all to see and we can follow because He has set us free.
But I must stress so Great was His Love,
You can choose to stay with the evil master throughout your living day.
We should be aware though we may not easily see,
The evil masters bondage is already a part of me and it is also in thee.
It is by God’s Grace we hear the call,
It is Christ who came to set us free.
Darkness cannot stand against the light,
It must flee at first sight.
When you hear the call which comes to thee,
Come to Christ and ever live,
This is the Great Gift He came to give.
