YOU HAVE SET ME FREE!…Carl Gooch

By the Mighty Mumford

You Have Set Me Free

I was bound by sin, but you set me free

Words can’t explain what you mean to me.

My heart overflows with joyous praise,

I’ll tell the world what you’ve done for me.

In depths of my night I cried out to you,

And just as you promised your love was true.

You came and you changed me forever,

Now in all I say and I do, I will live for you.

I was bound by sin, but you set me free

Words can’t explain what you mean to me.

My heart overflows with joyous praise,

I’ll tell the world what you’ve done for me.

You are my solid rock, my fortress true,

Let everyone know how much I love you.

You are with me and lead me in love,

And in the end you will call me home to you.

When I lived out in the country and I didn’t mow the grass…

Eight Things You Don’t Know About New York City, But Totally Should

Mary in Manhattan

This isn’t a post on how to read the subway map or buy your metro card. It’s about those tiny signs you may be missing as you fast-walk through the grid. Next time you see a pink paper taped to a street sign, or a discreet number on a lamppost, you’ll know what it means.

1. Ever see a black and white striped bar above a subway platform? It’s usually about six cars from the front and it means the car that stops there is where the conductor will be. Good for staying safe on those late night rides.

2. In a hurry? You can swipe your credit card DURING your cab ride. Just press the fare amount in the bottom corner and hit “pay now.”

3. The lampposts in Central Park all have a number on the base. The last two numbers represent the street number you are closest…
