Once I was bound by sin's galling fetters


    • 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. ......
