08. Remember Your Chains

Heaven In The Real World
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

I couldn't help but wonder what he was thinking
As he stared out the window through the sky
It seemed he was taking his last look at freedom
From the hopeless longing in his eyes
There were chains on his hands and chains on his feet
And as I passed him by the thought came to me

Remember your chains
Remember the prison that once held you
Before the love of God broke through
Remember the place you were without grace
And when you see where you are now
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

Thereís no one more thankful to sit at the table
Than the one who best remembers hungerís pain
And no heart loves greater than the one that is able
To recall the time when all it knew was shame
The wings of forgiveness can take us to heights never seen
But the wisest ones, they will never lose sight of where
they were set free

So, remember your chains
Remember the prison that once held you
Before the love of God broke through
Remember the place you were without grace
And when you see where you are now
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

And in the light of all that weíve been forgiven of
We will find our hearts fuller and freer
To give and receive Godís love

So, remember your chains
Remember the prison that once held you
Before the love of God broke through
Remember the place you were without grace
And when you see where you are now
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

Imagine what you life would be
If Jesus had not set you free
Remember your chains are gone
Remember all that once held you
Before the love of God broke through
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone
You gotta remember your chains
And remember that your chains are gone
