I couldn't help but wonder what he was thinking
As he stared out the window through the sky
It seemed he was taking his last look at freedom
From the hopeless longing look in his eyes

There were chains on his hands and chains on his feet
And as I passed him by, the thought came to me

Remember your chains
Remember the prison that once held you
Before the love of God broke through

Remember the place you were without grace
When you see where you are now
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

There's no one more thankful to sit at the table
Than the one who best remembers hunger's pain
And no heart loves greater than the one that is able
To recall the time when all it knew was shame

The wings of forgiveness can take us to heights never seen
But the wisest ones, they will never lose sight
Of where they were set free, love set them free

So remember your chains
Remember the prison that once held you
Before the love of God broke through

Remember the place you were without grace
When you see where you are now
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

And in the light of all that we've been forgiven of
We will find our hearts fuller and freer
To give and receive God's love

So remember your chains
Remember the prison that once held you
Before the love of God broke through

Remember the place you were without grace
When you see where you are now
Remember your chains

Oh, remember your chains
When you remember your chains
Remember your chains are gone

You gotta remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

Imagine what your life would be
If Jesus had not set you free
Remember your chains are gone

Remember all that once held you
Before the love of God broke through
Remember your chains
And remember your chains are gone

You gotta remember your chains
And remember that your chains are gone
