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.



 

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 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.



GLORIOUS FREEDOM, WONDERFUL FREEDOM,

NO MORE IN CHAINS OF SIN I REPINE!

JESUS THE GLORIOUS EMANCIPATOR,

NOW AND FOREVER HE SHALL BE MINE.




 

BLESSED ASSURANCE


BLESSED ASSURANCE, JESUS IS MINE!

O WHAT A FORETASTE OF GLORY DIVINE!

HEIR OF SALVATION, PURCHASE OF GOD,

BORN OF HIS SPIRIT, WASHED IN HIS BLOOD.




THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,

PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG.

THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,

PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG.



PERFECT SUBMISSION, PERFECT DELIGHT!

VISIONS OF RAPTURE NOW BURST ON MY SIGHT;

ANGELS DESCENDING BRING FROM ABOVE

ECHOES OF MERCY, WHISPERS OF LOVE.



THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,

PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG;

THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,

PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG.



PERFECT SUBMISSION, ALL IS AT REST!

I IN MY SAVIOR AM HAPPY AND BLEST,

WATCHING AND WAITING, LOOKING ABOVE,

FILLED WITH HIS GOODNESS, LOST IN HIS LOVE.




THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,

PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG;

THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,

PRAISING MY SAVIOR ALL THE DAY LONG.
