The poem is below.



There is power in the name of Love
it all started from heaven above
to Break every chain that toyed me to the dark
break every chain that locked me away 
break every chain that cut deep within 
I hold my pains so long within 
I cry out to you Jehovah 
to unlock these chains of my heart
break the spell that was put upon my soul
break every chain that kept me down so low 
break every chain that beat me night and day 
take the rode and beat away those lies 
in the Power Of Love 
my heart holds the truth of you
The whispers in the morning
of the angels that watched over my soul 
has prayed night and day 
to keep a light upon my path 
where I know deep within my heart 
there is a love that is stronger then the dark 
when lovers sleeping tight through out the night
there they will here the rolling thunder of my cry's
As they will look out side 
they will see the light that shines on me 
that Jehovah is taken the chains off of me 
I hold on to my broken down body
And I feel each move of my bones 
make way for healing of my soul
Jehovah your voice is warm and tender 
you hold compassion over my soul 
Your Love I could not forsake 
this is no dreams of heartaches and pains 
you open my eyes and showed me I am truly alive 
I am a lady of white 
Whenever you reach for me I will always be near
I'll do all that I can to show you I care
Lost is how I was feeling lying in your love
but you clean me up like one of your white doves
When the world outside get too strong for me to bear 
you rapped me up in your care
that's all I need is to know you love me 
when I'm with you in your care 
I know that no one could ever take that away from me
even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away in the cloud of gray 
But I will Never wonder where you are
because Your love is with me even from far
you are always by my side day and night 
for the rest of my life .
