SLAVE OF LOVE

See post earlier today re: Mary Magdalene. The final phrases, "free to love, free to serve, free to follow"... lead to this song.
================================================

I look out now, through eyes that see,

No fear, no pain, to torture me.
No more unwanted, nor alone.
Come now and make my heart your throne.

I've lived a life of agony,
Fog-shrouded pain engulfing me.
You healed my heart --
You met my need --
And through your love
My soul's been freed.

Chorus:

I'm free to serve you
All my days.
I'm freely bound
To sing your praise.
I'm free to chain
My life to yours –
A slave of Love,
Forevermore



By David and Joanne Norton, 1985.

NOTE: If you would like to hear the song, click the "Slave of Love" link. [The vocalist is a friend; pianist is Dave; "flute" is me from my synthesized horn.]

Love the words, Joanne! "Chain my life to yours." I need to get busy on that...

You met my need --
And through your love
My soul's been freed.

AMEN!!

Beautiful, Caryjo. I listened twice. I WISH I was gifted to make music, especially when I hear something so lovely.
