No Power Over Me

No Power Over Me
Words & Music by Steve Siler

For so long I felt like I was damaged
As if nothing I did was enough
Alone and drowning in my secret
I felt unworthy of love
I was fearful of humiliation
I was certain that everybody knew
But there was nothing wrong with me
and now at last I finally see it
So today here’s what I choose to do

I release you
You have no power over me
I forgive you
I choose to set my own heart free
I am no longer the victim
of the bad choices that you made
Perhaps someday you’ll get the help you need
You have no power over me

For too long I let hatred define me
I hated you for putting me in hell
I hated God for letting it happen
I even hated myself
But now I realize I bear no blame here
So I let myself out of this cell
What you did was not alright
but starting now I have decided
It won’t spoil tomorrow as well

Cause
I release you
You have no power over me
I forgive you
I choose to set my own heart free
I am no longer the victim
of the wrong choices that you made
I hope someday you get the help you need
You have no power over me

The isolation is over
At last the truth has been told
The shadows no longer control me
and a new story is unfolding

Cause I release you
You have no power over me
I forgive you
I choose to set my own heart free
I am no longer the victim
of the wrong choices that you made
I pray someday you get the help you need
You have no power over me
Today I choose to set my own heart free
You have no power over me

Haunting and hopeful. It’s beautiful.  The voice sounds at peace and free.

Max Haskett, Life Management Center, Nashville, TN

I’m in tears because this is so right on!!  I choose not to be defined by what happened to me, rather to be defined by what I choose to do with what has happened to me! I’m free.

Dawn Damon, Grand Rapids, MI

The title is perfect, and the words give permission and offer the strength for a person to head into this very healing journey of releasing their perpetrator, should they so choose.
