The Heart’s Cry for Freedom: A Reflection on Cabela and Schmitt’s ‘Cryin For Freedom’
Perhaps after so much loss from the pandemic, we are reminded of the fragility of life, and the need for compassion and understanding. It is in this spirit that songwriting team Cabela and Schmitt released their new single, ‘Cryin For Freedom’.
A Simple Plea to the Human Heart
At its core, ‘Cryin For Freedom’ is a simple statement for all of us to just look into our own hearts to understand ourselves. It is a call to empathize with those who are less fortunate and to recognize their humanity.
A Cry for Justice and Fair Play
The lyrics of the song reference a powerful quote attributed to Jesus: “Whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, the poor and powerless, you do to me.” These words are strikingly clear and unmistakable. They remind us that the thirst in the throat of Jesus is a real thirst that cries to heaven as it did then on Calvary. And that cry of Jesus at the point of dying is repeated in thousands of throats that today are clamoring for justice and fair play, when they beg for bread, for respect for the color of their skin, for a minimal medical assistance, for shelter, for education, for freedom.
A Call to Action
As we listen to this song, we are confronted with the reality of the world we live in. We are reminded of the injustices and inequalities that still exist, and the need for us to do our part to make a difference.
In a time when the world feels so divided, ‘Cryin For Freedom’ offers a message of hope and unity. It reminds us that we are all connected, and that we all have a responsibility to care for one another.
