“Shackles” by Mary Mary

 

“I’m gonna praise you even if I have cancer”

I love to praise the Lord through song and nobody does it better than  Mary Mary in their song Shackles (Praise You).  But does it even make sense to praise the Lord when you have cancer?  It’s much too easy, whether you are the person diagnosed or the caregiver to focus on the fatigue, the side effects, the diagnosis or a slew of other negative things and miss the things still worth praising. Crank up this song LOUD and let the shackles of cancer fall from your feet!

 

Whoo!

It sure is hot out here

Ya know?

I don’t mind thought?)

Just glad to be free

Know what I’m saying, uh!

 

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance

I just wanna praise you

(What’cha wanna do?)

I just wanna praise you

(Yeah, yeah)

You broke the chains now I can lift my hands

(Uh feel me

And I’m gonna praise you

(What’cha gon do?)

I’m gonna praise you

 

In the corners of mind

I just can’t seem to find a reason to believe

That I can break free

Cause you see I have been down for so long

Feel like the hope is gone

But as I lift my hands, I understand

That I should praise you through my circumstance

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance

I just wanna praise you

I just wanna praise you

You broke the chains now I can lift my hands

And I’m gonna praise you

I’m gonna praise you

 

Everything that could go wrong

All went wrong at one time

So much pressure fell on me

I thought I was gon lose my mind

But I know you wanna see

If I will hold on through these trials

But I need you to lift this load

Cause I can’t take it anymore
