167. Freedom in Jesus

1 I’m happy in Jesus, rejoicing today;
And Jesus my Saviour with me has his way;
The Comforter comes in my glad heart to stay;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free!

I’m free, free! gloriously free!
No longer by sin I am bound;
The precious blood cleanseth and satisfies me,
This freedom in Jesus I’ve found.

2 This freedom in Jesus means blessed release,
From sin and from sinning forever to cease;
And freedom from self brings such infinite peace;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

3 This freedom in Jesus is glorious rest,
A peaceful reclining on his loving breast;
And when I just trust him my soul is so blest;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

4 His love is so tender, his pow’r so divine,
My all to his keeping I gladly resign;
A vessel of clay for my Lord to design;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

5 No longer I’m fettered the Lord hath control,
The clear light of heaven breaks in on my soul;
I’ll sing while the years of eternity roll,
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]
