THE GREATEST FREEDOM
The greatest freedom I have found I have found in You-
Free indeed, no longer bound, free to will and do.
Bowing at the cross, surprised at finding liberty,
I wonder in my repose, Lord, are You, too, free?
I see the work that You still do, in dealing with my sin.
How can You ever be, if I’m not pure within?
In my heart of hearts I know, I see!
I hold the key within my choice to set my Savior free.
Danna Lott, May 2010
On September 28, 2012, Kalon Gesellchen and I united our lives in service to the Lord. The Lord gave me a song to sing to him at the wedding, “A song for my beloved.”
