Audrey Gordon — I Am Free lyrics

I am free
Writer: Audrey Gordon ©2004, All Rights Reserved

1.
Lord when I saw you standing there alone in Pilate' s judgment hall that day
I heard the words, all the slurs
How could I believe what they say?
Heard all the lies, all their tales
How could they even treat you that way?
But it was for me

Chorus: And I, I should have stood in the hall that day
But you took my place, paid the price for my sin and disgrace
You bore the pain, took the blame
I could hear when you call out my name
That I was free

2.
And then I saw when they lead you away to Calvary
Saw when they gave you the cross to carry
Saw when they mocked and they jeered and they scourged thee
So I could be free

Chorus: And I, I should have carried the cross that day
But you took my place, paid the price for my sin and disgrace
You bore the shame, took the blame
I could hear when you call out my name
That I was free

3.
And then I saw when they drove all the nails in your hands
Heard their remarks, their rebukes and all their accusations
Heard when they laughed, saw the blood and the reed that they placed in your hands
So I would be free

Chorus: And I, I should have hung on the cross that day
But you took my place, paid the price for my sin and disgrace
You bore the shame, took the blame
I could hear when you call out my name
That I was free
4.
Then I saw when the blood flowed down from your wounded side
Saw when you gasped and you held down your head and died
Then the graves opened and I hung my head I cried, I cried
Thank God, I am free

Chorus: And I, I should have died on the cross that day
But you took my place, paid the price for my sin and disgrace
Bore the my pain, took the blame
I could hear when you call out my name
That I was free

Chorus: And I, I should have hung on the cross that day
But you took my place, paid the price for my sin and disgrace
Bore the shame, took the shame
I could hear when you call out my name, my name, my name, That I was free
