“Break Every Chain” is a powerful, building song, especially for those who have ever struggled or currently struggle with an addiction. Kim Walker Smith does a really great rendition of this song, but I found Tasha Cobbs’ version even better. It’s a very simple song lyric-wise, since it mostly repeats on itself.

Break Every Chain
Written By Will Reagan
CCLI#: 5910977

There is power in the name of Jesus(3x) (Jeremiah 10:6, Luke 1:31-33John 14:12-14, John 16:23-24, Acts 3:16Acts 4:12Philippians 2:9-11, 1 John 4:4)
to break every chain, break every chain, break every chain. (2x) (John 8:31-36, Acts 12:6-7, Romans 6:22-23, Galatians 5:1)

Theres an army rising up.(3x) (Isaiah 54:17, Ephesians 6:10-18, 1 Corinthians 15:57, 2 Timothy 2:3-4James 4:12)
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.(2x) (Isaiah 58:6-8, Acts 3:6-7Acts 16:18)

I hear the chains falling.


With love,


P.S. For those of you who like memes, I thought this one was hilarious and quite timely for this song. Thanks Christian Memes for keeping us chuckling (And I’m sure Jesus is too).

  1. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS WEBSITE AND GLORIFYING GOD. He is totally using you! Continue encouraged in the Lord. He loves you so so so so so so so much, and not because of the deeds but because He just does! We’re saved by faith. Love you!

  2. Thanks for posting scripture references, my wife and I were looking for verses that were good for encouragement and I found your blog. I also blog and pray my writing encourages and inspires others to follow Jesus as yours has. Be blessed Sean Trank

  3. Thanks so much for allowing God to use you in this way. I am a worship leader constantly looking to make sure the songs we do are scripturally-based and of sound doctrine. Your work is very much appreciated.
    While Tasha Cobbs is an excellent vocalist and her version is very powerful, I really like the verse that she does not include:
    All sufficient sacrifice
    So freely given such a price
    Bought our redemption Heaven’s gates
    Swing wide
    The “all-sufficient sacrifice” part gets me every time! Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you Matthew for the encouragement and also that missing verse! I didn’t even know there was another verse! Those are great lyrics, it’s too bad she left them out.
