Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

769. It Was Jesus Who Set Me Free

1 When I was treading the pathway of wrong,
When I was bound by the fetters so strong,
When I had lost all my sunshine and song,
It was Jesus who set me free.

Refrain:
It was Jesus who set me free,
It was Jesus who set me free;
Now every chain has been broken in twain,
It was Jesus who set me free.

2 When for my soul there was no one to care,
When condemnation seemed mine everywhere,
When I was bound by the chains of despair,
It was Jesus who set me free. [Refrain]

3 When on my pathway no light seemed to shine,
When I was dreading the judgment divine,
When evil powers seemed all to combine,
It was Jesus who set me free. [Refrain]

4 When I am singing His glory and praise,
Marvelous, wonderful, infinite grace,
That He should suffer and die in my place—
It was Jesus who set me free. [Refrain]
