lyrics

Shots rang out at the break of dawn
in a village off the coast of Africa.
On the floor of a cell lay a refugee,
thrown in prison when he planned to flee.

Thirteen years lying on that floor,
hope of any freedom left long before,
but little did he know running down that street,
a soldier came looking just to set him free.

When love comes, love runs
to free the slave that war had almost won.
When love comes, love runs
to rescue the captive one.

Well, sliding those chains up off his feet,
that shell of a man, he soon began to weep.
He rose up slow and headed out that door,
but clung to his savior like a frightened boy.

When love comes, love runs
to free the slave that war had almost won.
When love comes, love runs
to rescue the captive one.

Well, I’d like to say they made it safe and both of those survived,
but that soldier drew his final breath so that man could testify:

When love comes, love runs
to free the slave that war had almost won.
When love comes, love runs
to rescue the captive one,
to rescue the captive one.
