Rags to Robes – Caleb and Sol (with lyrics)

AFAIK, this is the only place where these lyrics can be found online. If you have any corrections, I’d be happy to review my interpretation of these lyrics. Please post any suggested changes in the comments area below this post :)

I shared Rags to Robes (by Caleb and Sol) a while ago, but just last week I decided to type down the lyrics for the song. To the best of my knowledge, the lyrics aren’t available in the internet, so you saw them here first! ;)

Anyways, here’s the official music for you to follow along:

Rags to robes,
Chains to wings,
Praise the Lord,
My freed soul sings.

The rags represent the best the world could ever offer me,
A symbol of depravity, the emblem of true poverty.
The robes are the clothes for the members of God’s family,
A special gown for those who choose to drink the blood from Calvary.

In His mercy, Jesus took my rags and gave me a robe,
A treat that saved my life, and all to Him I owe.
If it’s right to praise the Lord then it’s wrong to be hushed,
So sing with us the freedom song if God is your trust.

Rags to robes,
Chains to wings,
Praise the Lord,
My freed soul sings.

And I’ve been searching for the key to set me free.
A chain’s weighing on me, pray for grace to pardon me.
Hopeless and I’m helpless till I felt your holy power,
You came to bring me strength, like a fire, in my darkest hour.

Visions in my eyes, healed from my sickness,
Heavy laden heart and soul covered by forgiveness,
Delivered me from the bondage again,
I’ll thank Him and I’ll praise Him, He’s my very best friend.

Rags to robes,
Chains to wings,
Praise the Lord,
My freed soul sings.

Rags to robes,
Chains to wings,
Praise the Lord,
My freed soul sings,

Freedom.

Isn’t that amazing? And true? And comforting? In a world where too many “Christian” songs are theologically shallow and light, it’s refreshing to hear songs like “Rags to Robes”.

In this song, Caleb and Sol have really hit the nail on the head, writing about our miserable state of sin. But, in His mercy, Jesus takes our rags by forgiving our sins, and gives us His robes of righteousness so we will be considered perfect before God.

Do these guys a favour and buy their songs. I’m not in any way affiliated with them, but I acknowledge the depth and profundity of the songs they write.

Thanks for reading, and enjoy!
