Set my soul free!

“Mercy mercy me!”

Lawd, set my soul free!

I’m bound by a cord of three.

Fighting for my dignity.

Alone, I think of my integrity.

The path is crooked like a knotty tree.

I’ve tried to work with destiny.

Resisting all dominance and tyranny.

Restrained myself from too much honey.

Kept my eyes from envy.

Worked hard for a life that’s fulfilling.

Railed against the pull of misery.

Refused to be in it’s company.

But Lawd! Just set my soul free!

Have mercy, mercy on me.
