I don’t have religion, I have joy
all Your praises to employ.
I thank you Jesus for giving me
a better life and liberty.
You saw my quest for happiness
then Your Love was manifest.
You gave me Life and You gave me Joy
I would not spoil it for anything.
Why should I want to add to You
where would I find
and what would I choose?
All the blessings I’ve found with You
in You I find my Everything.
You’re my contentment
You are my PEACE
You’ve given to me sweet release
from the stresses of life
and this world of strife.
In You I find Perfect Peace.
I look to You in all my needs
I know You provide
and I’m at ease.
If there is something I’ve learnt from You
I’ve only to come, I can count on You.
If there is a tempest
You’re at the helm
of the ship that I’m on
in this earthly realm.
You guide me to safety
You steer a straight course.
I live in Your Triumphs
You make me FREE.
You’re my satisfaction
why would I trade this for anything?
Worldly bondage? religious laws?
You’ve guided me surely to New Shores.
It’s Nice to be Free...
Freedom to be just what I am
You have for me such perfect plans
of things that suit me
and make me to be
confident and free to express.
Truly I would not settle for less
than Jesus very best.
You give me freedom to change
and to see a vision for change.
Things that hinder I’d not want to linger
so I can adapt to new things.
Sometimes new talents are waiting for me
waiting for my discovery.
