Prison


 Have you ever sat in the prison so strong,
 That is, because you did a great wrong?
 It might be real or imagined, of course ...
 Was not your fault, some other old horse.
 
 Square away, now!
 Each is responsible for his own sin.
 Discipline is the beginning of learning, you see!
 That is why we are disciplined to learners be.
 
 There are many brothers who can vouch for me ...
 Because they, like me, Christ has set free!
 God said, "Come, Come reason with me!
 Though your sins be scarlet, I will set you free!
 
 Pour out springs of water, flooding your soul.
 Come unto me.  Make my likeness your goal!
 I have marvelous salvation for free!
 But, only if you come and live here with me!"
 
 No prison can hold you, if you are free!
 Maybe your body but, your spirit is free.
 When you know Christ, you are all set free!
 You see, He broke all the bars of prison for me!
 
 Square away, now!
 Each is responsible for his own sin.
 Discipline is the beginning of learning, you see!
 That is why we are disciplined to learners be.
