I am no more a slave of sin
Since Jesus set me free;
He broke the chains that held me in,
He made my blind eyes see.
Once I was bound to serve the flesh,
Its passions I obeyed;
Now Christ’s commands my soul refresh,
My debts are fully payed.
My feet were headed to the pit,
Destruction dogged my way;
But Jesus came – He can acquit –
He saved me on that day.
Oh glorious life! I now am free
To serve the King of kings
Whose love and grace reached even me –
My every breath now sings:
I’m free to live for Christ alone,
The flesh has lost its right.
Oh let me be Your very own
To bring You true delight.
