The Whippoorwill Song/I Give You Freedom

Albert B. Smith (1975)

Lyrics

I set the boundries of the ocean vast,
Carved out the mountains from the distant past,
Molded a man from the miry clay,
Breathed in him life, but he went astray.

[Refrain]

[Refrain]
I own the cattle on a thousand hills;
I write the music for the whippoorwills,
Control the planets with their rocks and rills,
But give you freedom to use your own will.

I hold the waters in my mighty hand,
Spread out the heavens with a single span,
Make all creation tremble at My voice,
But My own sons come to Me by choice.

[Refrain]

Even the oxen know the Master's stall,
And sheep will recognize the shepherd's call.
I could demand your love- I own you twice;
But only willing love is worth the price.
[Refrain]


[Coda]
And if you want Me to, I'll make you whole;
I'll only do it though if you say so.
I'll never force you for I love you so;
I give you freedom; is it yes or no?
I give you freedom; is it yes or no?
I give you freedom; is it yes or no?
