Encrust

John 15:15
New Living Translation (NLT)

15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.


Encrusted in Doubt

Like a ship with barnacles
We are all weighed down
By the baggage we carry
And the guilt to which we’re bound

Too long we have listened
To the voices of spite
Who have told us we are nothing
And did it with delight

Until at last our own thoughts
Are filled with such self-doubt
That we come to believe
It’s what life is about

And there in the emptiness
Of our deep-wounded soul
We remain fully encrusted
In all that we’ve been told

But there is a sweet voice
That whispers nothing but love
A shepherd who came quickly
From high up above

He can free you from your prison
He can break all your chains
He’ll remake you like new
Until only Light will remain

So if you are covered
In sickness and grief
Just call out from the darkness
And He will give you relief.

Father,

You have sent us a Shepherd, who is Jesus, and He has set us free. We thank You for such a great blessing.
