At the cross I lay it down
exchanging burdens for a crown
receiving truth, grace and life
rejoicing in this sacrifice.
Truth restores my tired mind
grace covers what’s left behind
life revives the death in me
for Your glory, set me free.
Free me from my sin and doubt
cleanse me from the inside out
remove each ounce of fear in me
for Your glory, set me free.
Joy is here for those who come
open hearts receive Your Love
the new is here the old is done
by Your grace we’ve been reborn.
Sung in the style of a hymn where each phrase has a slight key change giving the final verse a tone of excited victory! 
–Cheryl Folland May 2015.
