Lifted away forever free
Who could believe, who could believe?

Bridges burn in the heat of it all
But nothing's sweeter than the day
Sweeter than the day we call

You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along

Then my heart was healed and my story's changed
Now a sweeter life I'm breathing in
Freedom's where forgiveness is
