Out of freedom

We worship you out of freedom
We come to raise our eyes
To a bigger possibility
Than we can imagine as we get out of bed most mornings

We are not slaves
To the benefits system
To our employers
To our need for esteem
To our desire for money and security
To our long term illness
To the stuff that fills our houses

You proclaim freedom for us
And in return we proclaim you
You as the object of our joy
And the source of our freedom

We choose you as our focusing point
Not our family
Our friends
Our comforts

Because what we worship consumes us
And only when you consume us
Do we move beyond ourselves
Stripped naked by the bare truth
Into freedom
