The Sweet Exchange (written for H.O.)

In ostentatious grace,
My Lord hath set me free.
My bondage He replaced
With sugared liberty!

Set free from Satan’s chains,
My Lord sent sweet relief.
Forever I’ll proclaim:
My joy beyond belief!

He set this captive free,
This mourner now can sing.
He changed my chains of steel,
To cotton candy strings.

In His magnificence,
His saving was replete.
He spun deliverance:
Turned bitter into sweet.

My chains are cotton now
That has no hold on me.
Burdens are forgotten;
I taste His liberty!

By Tom Valles

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
