jesus, make me free

God –

I have been a kind of slave for too long.

Whether willingly or accidentally,
I have been made a hostage to my own desires,
My own selfishness,
And my own deterioration.

I cannot escape on my own,
But I want to be free.

Please release me
From the bonds of my addictions,
From the chains of my sin,
And from the cell of my thoughts.

Instead of being bound by evil
I willingly bind myself to you.

I would call you Master
And make myself your slave;
But you have called me friend instead,
So I wholeheartedly accept your friendship
And the freedom you have offered with it.

Help me to live free
And never to wander back into the place of imprisonment again.
