Free for You

I was blind, burdened unaware;
   Chained, my sin was to me.
You saw, cared; chains loosed, taken to
   Hang with You on that tree.

I leapt free rejoicing; until
   I saw that burden's cost.
Agony, pain; Your life drained free,
   To save me, one so lost.

Free; yet I find in me longing
   For that familiar weight.
Consume all of me, so over
   My will, Yours will hold sway.
