5 ~ 4:25
When I look up I long to see you, Lord
But when I look around I see for evermore
But I know I do not know what lies in store
What lies in store today

So I'm gonna pray I'll pray a prayer of hope
That I walk by faith through this world I used to know
And you're there you're my
Saviour to light my way

And don't you ever let me see too much
Or else I just might break from this freedom, yeah

So now when I sing you know I aim to please
Only my King from a heart that's down on its knees
That's one command I think I might have
A good chance to keep
And I'm so glad there's one


I wanna see through His eyes
I wanna let faith be my guide
As I'm walk, walk, walkin' through this life


So now when I speak I pray you hear the truth
Comin' from the mouth of a boy who has over
And over proved God's love
And the forgiveness found in His son

Note: In an interview I asked him about the lyrics on this song:
~ Also, I'm missing an important part of this song.. what are you saying in this verse from the song Freedom?

And don't you ever let me see too much
Or else I just might break from this freedom, yeah

Mitch:  I based that song on a poem by Emily Dickinson, "1129".  The poem and that line are simply saying, "if we saw the truth all at once, it would be too much for us."  I was writing as if freedom and truth were synonymous.

 Tell all the Truth but tell it slant --
 Success in Circuit lies
 Too bright for our infirm Delight
 The Truth's superb surprise
 As Lightning to the Children eased
 With explanation kind
 The Truth must dazzle gradually
  Or every man be blind --


To support his ministry, order music and the book directly from the official

Awesome Bible links

 Drink some of God's
