One foot planted
In God’s wholeness
The other caught
In selfish gain
The chasm widens
Now precarious
I must choose
Avoiding pain
One hand 
Held out to free me
By other hands
I’m captive held
As I reach
For life and wholeness
The hands of madness
Are expelled
Christ is stronger
Than my captors
Greater still
Than all I’ve been
He leads me
To a world so hopeful
Frees me from
The world of sin
Choose this day
I beg my spirit
Choose life
And be made whole
Choose not
The empty promise
Of a world
That kills the soul
