rules, boundaries – v2

not to harm us
to cage, to tame us
rules, boundaries
Thou Shall Not’s
lines in scripture
we shall not cross

freedom bound
by the commands of Christ
to love only God
and our neighbors as ourselves
to love as Christ loves us
rules, boundaries
to guide us on our walk

to show we are followers
disciples of Christ
freedom bound
out of love, mercy,
gathered one day
to our home above.

“The thief comes only to steal
and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life,
and have it to the full.”
