Haldor Lillenas, 1917.
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.
Glorious freedom! Wonderful freedom! No more in chains of sin I repine! Jesus the glorious Emancipator— Now and forever He shall be mine.
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!
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!
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.
