Masquerade

His Life Has Paid

by Susan Irene Fox

I chained myself; I wore a masquerade

He reached for me; I ran away in vain

Deliberate, his blood, his life has paid

 

In captivity I would e’er have stayed

He caught me, loved me, freed me, broke my chains

I chained myself; I wore a masquerade

 

He did not sin, was by design betrayed

Forgave me and destroyed my false domain

Deliberate, his blood, his life has paid

 

Redeemed through Christ whose light will never fade

My heart the Holy Spirit does contain

I chained myself; I wore a masquerade

 

He overturned and smashed my grand charade

Left naught but faith, hope, love – these three remain

Deliberate, his blood, his life has paid

 

So ashamed to be free, I was afraid

His grace dries clean every single tear stain

I chained myself; I wore a masquerade

Deliberate, his blood, his life has paid
