A Captive

Posted in hymn, song lyrics tagged , , at 5:00 am by blync77

Make me a captive, Lord, and then I shall be free.
 
Force me to render up my sword, and I shall conqueror be.
 
I sink in life’s alarms when by myself I stand;
 
Imprison me within thine arms, and strong shall be my hand.

George Matheson, “Make Me a Captive, Lord.” The United Methodist Hymnal, no. 421.
