Glorious Freedom

Lyrics 

Verse 1

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. 

 

Chorus 

Glorious freedom, wonderful freedom,

No more in chains of sin I repine!

Jesus the glorious Emancipator,

Now and forever He shall be mine. 

 

Verse 2  

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. 

 

Verse 3 

Freedom from pride and all sinful follies,

Freedom from love and glitter of gold;

Freedom from evil, temper, and anger,

Glorious freedom, rapture untold. 

 

Verse 4 

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.

 

Tag 

He shall be mine.

He shall be mine.

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
