(Lyrics) The Spirit of the Lord's Freedom
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©

Now the Lord is the Spirit
And where the Spirit of the Lord is
There is freedom

Now this ministry is written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the Living God
Not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts
It is not a ministry that condemns men, it is a ministry that saves men
For if the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ
And the glory of the ministry of righteousness surpasses the glory of Moses
For the glory of Moses fades away when this greater glory arrives which lasts

Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold
We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face
A veil to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while its radiance was fading away
And their minds were made dull when the old covenant is read
For letters on stone kill, but the Spirit gives life
So let us with unveiled faces all reflect and be transformed into ever increasing glory
Which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit, and it is the Spirit who gives life
