Sweet Sound of Freedom - Poetry " Anointed Gifts -

Sweet Sound of Freedom!

What is that sound that I hear?
Amidst the fear
It’s the sweet sound of Freedom drawing near.

We’s about to be free
No more hanging from a tree

It’s a brand new day
We’re on our way

Sweet sound of Freedom ringing in our ears
We shed so many tears
Praying for this day
God is showing us the way

Lord knows we tried
How we cried
God said it’s time to set the captives free
Our masters have to let us be

Whom the Son sets free is free indeed
Sweet sound of Freedom is calling in our time of need.

Sweet sound of Freedom has reached our door
We won’t be back no more

We’re running towards the sound
God I have found

God, thank you that we are free

Free to praise Thee.
