I am a captive, a slave and a prisoner restrained in flesh and blood.
I long to fly and accomplish great things but it is on Earth where this body is stood.
My greatest desire is to unite myself with my Heavenly Master on high.
I vow to myself that one day I will do so but for now I stay with a sigh.
Wherever this body goes, I go also and I will continue until God calls me away.
I live for today but also tomorrow and all the tomorrows along the way.
I serve the body for it is my master but then so is my Master in Heaven above.
When my Earthly master would lead me astray, I will reach for God and his love
I am a captive, a slave and a prisoner restrained by a physical restraint.
So I will simply live out my days here on Earth without tears or cries of complaint.
My day is coming when I will be freed and I will fly away with my Lord.
I will have powers I never experienced on Earth and I will wield a mighty sword.
“What sword is that?’ you ask of me now. “What powers will you know?”
I will have the powers of my Heavenly Father and I will enjoy a Heavenly glow.
