In Your Name

Darkness held me captive
A web of sin within me active
A prisoner to my own mind
Chains locked me in a bind

Morning never brought with it light
Just a reminder of a long, dark night
My thoughts continually on replay
I wanted it all to go away

Worthlessness plagued my thoughts
I'd forgotten my sin You bought
My tears never seemed to cease
I couldn't find joy or peace

When I couldn't find You, You came to me
You loosened my chains and set me free
You healed me of the darkest night
And satisfied me with light

You restored and renewed my heart
You gave me a chance for a brand new start
Now in Your name I continually dwell
Jesus, of Your great love I will tell
