Karlie Marie Harrington… Free Indeed

This morning I had the privilege of witnessing the moment God set Karlie Marie Harrington (my beautiful niece and Goddaughter) free in baptism and claim her as His own beloved daughter! Here’s the song I wrote for her special day. (A side note: “Karlie” means “free.” ).

Free Indeed

by Rebekah Freed for Karlie Marie Harrington

Lord as we bring this child to you,
We trust in Your grace, in promises true.
Though born into sin,
Now through water and word,
You claim her as Your daughter this day!

Now she’s free… washed in the water!
She’s free … welcomed to Your family!
She’s free … forever forgiven!
She’s free…You’ve made her free, free indeed!

Dearest Child, as we bring you to Christ,
We have wonderful dreams of what He’ll do in your life.
May you grow in His grace
As you trust in His Word
May your heart know His great love ev’ry day

‘Cause You’re free… washed in the water!
You’re free … welcomed to God’s family!
You’re free … forever forgiven!
You’re free … truly free, free indeed!

We gather ’round to witness God’s grace.
This water reminds of His loving embrace
Not just for this child,
But for all of us here;
We celebrate new life today!

‘Cause we’re free… washed in the water!
We’re free … to be God’s family!
We’re free … forever forgiven!
We’re free … We are free, free indeed!

Yes, we are free!
Forever!
We are free!
Forever and ever. Forever, we’re free!
Forever and ever. Forever, we’re free!

We are free… washed in the water!
We’re free … to be God’s family!
We’re free … forever forgiven!
We’re free … truly free, free indeed!
