Glorious Freedom

Once I was bound by sin’s galling fetters Chained like a slave I struggled in vain

But I received a glorious freedom, When Jesus broke my fetters in twain.

Glorious freedom, wonderful freedom, No more in chains of sin I repine

Jesus the glorious Emancipator,  Now and forever He shall be mine

Freedom from all the carnal affections, Freedom from envy, hatred and strife

Freedom from vain and worldly ambitions. Freedom from all that saddened my life

Freedom from pride and all sinful follies, Freedom from love and glitter of gold

Freedom from evil temper and anger, Glorious freedom, rapture untold

Freedom from fear with all of its torments, Freedom from care with all of its pain

Freedom in Christ my blessed Redeemer, He who has rent my fetters in twain
