In Chains

We are born in chains
     to someone or something,
It is the nature of life
     on this spinning dirt clod.
But by the grace of God,
     we get to choose which or
Whom our shackles will be
     affixed as we walk around.
I choose to be a slave
     to Jesus the Christ, alone.
All I ask is as the strength
     of that chain is so grown,
It becomes ever shorter,
     drawing me closer to You.
