Casting Crowns Set Me Free Lyrics

Last updated: 01/04/2013 01:24:32 PM

It hasn't always been this way
I remember brighter days
Before the dark ones came
Stole my mind
Wrapped my soul in chains

Now I live among the dead
Fighting voices in my head
Hoping someone hears me crying in the night
And carries me away

Set me free of the chains holding me
Is anybody out there hearing me?
Set me free

Morning breaks another day
Finds me crying in the rain
All alone with my demons I am
Who is this man that comes my way?
The dark ones shriek
They scream His name
Is this the One they say will set the captives free?
Jesus, rescue me

As the God man passes by
He looks straight through my lies
And darkness cannot hide

Do you want to be free?
Lift your chains
I hold the key
All power on Heav'n and Earth belong to me

You are free
You are free
You are free

Thanks to for submitting Set Me Free Lyrics.

Set Us FREE | Reviewer: Houston | 1/4/13

Ok so this song has been out for a while...but at the time of me hearing it was God's perfect timing...I had been going through a lot of family issues...crying out to GOD Set US free from all this mess then one day riding was blaring in my ears...but was magnifing in my spirit man!! When you start singing it you can replace it with a personal name then set back and Watch GOD MOVE. I can burn a lot of calories when listing to this song... Thank God for Casting Crowns!!

We all need to be free from a lot of things! | Reviewer: Luis Alaín - Panamá | 11/30/12

This the crying of a person which is so desperate and doesn't find a way out. Thanks God he / She choice Jesus. If one person is saved by the Lord of Lord, who saves and gives eternal life, i'm sure Casting Crown's team will be very grateful with our God.
Hope this song can be heared for a lot of more people and say to Jesus as the chorus say: "set me free, of the chains holding me!!!"

The Almighty Freedom | Reviewer: Gabriel John Coombs | 10/15/11

This song is one of my favourites because it helped be get set free. I remember doing a lot of bad things. I got in fights at school, gave people black eyes, and watched dirty sex websites. After doing these things, I listen to this song by Casting Crowns. I listen to set me free, and every time, God saves me from sin and sets me free!

It Does Set you Free | Reviewer: | 5/30/10

This song is truth, and for me is personally moving. It represents what all followers of Christ must do, be Set Free! The first time i ever heard this song was while i was attending a youth rally, with my youth group. The church we where vistings youth had preformed an amazing skit to this. I was in tears from the moment the demons placed there chains on the teenager. Beautiful.

No title | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/15/10

We turned this song into a play (almost just like some other famous drama team did) and the results were awesome. I was pride and alcohol (I was a demon). Heres how the play went: demons and Satan and standing there, and a teenager comes onstage and walks around the demons, and as he walks by us our heads slowly come up. then Satan (willing his demons to do all we do) has us put chains on him, representing sin. Then we pull on the first "set me free". Then at the "of the chains holding me" we pull slowly... Then, as he's saying "Is anybody out there hearing me?" we lower him, pull him up, and throw him to the ground! At the next "set me free", we start circling him and pushing him around. Then 2 of us pull him to the front and we continue pushing him around, but we're stationary. Then, at the "Who is this man that comes my way?" we start pulling him back, as Jesus approaches. At the next "set me free", Jesus raises his arm and there's a flash of light, and the demons are thrown back off the boy! The boy tries to get up, but fails. then Satan wills his demons up and throws us back on him. But soon we're thrown back once again with Jesus' arms in the air. Jesus helps the boy up, and Satan tries to pull the boy away. Jesus and Satan pull him back and forth, and Jesus blasts Satan offstage! Jesus takes the chains off him and the boy falls, Jesus catching him. The boy and Jesus lift their hands to God as the demons and Satan bow down to Jesus. It was touching, we got three rounds of applause in the middle of the play and two applauds after the play.

Set Me Free - Casting Crowns | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/12/09

I have more recently grown to love this song. My youth group drama team is doing an amazing and powerful skit today for the Easter Sunday service. If you are interested in doing a great skit to a great song, check it out on Tangle under what else but "Set Me Free". There are a couple of good versions, and for ours, we combined them all together. I really encourage you to take a step in ministering to others through drama, even if you've never done drama before. This is a wonderful skit to put on for Easter, and it will truely be a blessing to all.
God bless,

Set Me Free | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/21/08

This song is absolutely amazing. It has really helped me. My best friend passed away recently, and i heard this song, it described her perfectly, and it gives me reassurance that she has been set free, that Jesus took her and set her free from all of her troubles. She was only 17, she suffered from many issues(more than we can fathom) those 17 years, and now she is free.

In tears... | Reviewer: Michael Blue | 10/9/08

Digging through my music collection for music for a new Alternative Worship Team that will be working a new Alt Service at my church, I knew my trusty Casting Crowns CD would hold some real gems...How had I missed this song? I am simply in tears at the ultimate message and powerful delivery this song provides...This is a conversion song, plain and simple. Utterly amazing how the Spirit moves in song...Thank you Casting Crowns for such an amazingly appropriate song, and thank you Jesus because every word of it is truth.

The power of Christ... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/29/08

We always hear about the timidity, mercy, and lovingkindness of our Lord, but He's also just and righteous, and is God in human form. Don't ever forget that. He describes Himself in Revelation 1:18. "I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades." He can and will save us from the darknesses of the world! This song shows this well.

Truth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/6/08

I appreciate the rawness and vulnerability of these type of Christian bands. There are lots of songs, books, and messages taught about who/what God is all about. This song captures the strenght, truth, and awesomeness of Gods ability to heal us. It makes you really feal his love and acceptance unconditionally.

Awesome Song! | Reviewer: Cody | 12/11/07

This is a truly awesome song by my favorite Christian group that has a powerful message. It really sums up in three words one of the major truths about our belief as Christians: we are free. I pray that, as children of God, we don't forget that.
