The Fellowship of the Word*Hymn              “Break Every Chain”           by Tasha Cobbs Leonard

There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain
