Prisoner Set Free

October 2, 2017


2 Kings 25:27-30

“And in the thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, Evil-merodach king of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, graciously freed Jehoiachin king of Judah from prison. And he spoke kindly to him and gave him a seat above the seats of the kings who were with him in Babylon. So Jehoiachin put off his prison garments. And every day of his life he dined regularly at the king’s table, and for his allowance, a regular allowance was given him by the king, according to his daily needs, as long as he lived.”

In my utter destruction
Of sinful pleasures and desires,
You graciously freed me
Putting out Satan’s consuming fires.

You lifted my head
Removed my prison garb,
Spoke kindly to me
Burst open the bars.

Your kindness and grace
Did not stop there,
For You gave me a seat next to Your Son
At Your table you bid me come.

I now dine regularly
From the goodness of His love,
You meet all my deepest needs
In spite of where my utter destruction was.

Worthy are You, Oh Lord
To receive all my praise,
You gently care for Your children
In You is my hope and stay.
