Radiant azure firmament
welcomes me for jubilant pursuit
such is fellowship verily triumphant
basking in my vibrant communion with God.
Under the sky, no one hindering
my soul reaches high beyond the celestial
as the Lord does bring me nigh His heart of love
when by faith I fly, yielding to my Saviour’s perfect will.
Bound for service-victory, my whole being is firmly gripped
with serenity-liberation chains so as to soar beyond
freedom bliss crest … while locked gratefully
in worshipful praise to my Creator.
Imprisoned now am I to my peace-granting bondage breaker
the God Almighty Who sacrificed Himself to save me
yes, He ransomed me with His compassion
bestowing eternal life He willingly paid.
Thus, my wretched soul is redeemed from hell’s torment
and “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I,
but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh…
I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”*
*Galatians 2:20 of the King James Bible
