Representative Text

1 Are you burdened with a load of sin?
Do you long the victory to win?
Christ alone your conqueror can be,
He can set you absolutely free.

Refrain:
Christ can set you absolutely free,
He alone can give the victory;
Only let Him have His way,
Simply trust Him ev’ry day,
He alone can set you absolutely free.

2 Is He not God’s well-beloved Son?
Has He not o’er sin the vict’ry won?
Why not trust the Lamb of Calvary?
He can set you absolutely free. [Refrain]

3 Self must go if Christ would enter in,
Striving cease, the life of faith begin;
Christ must reign, the King of kings is He,
He can set you absolutely free. [Refrain]

4 Now by faith accept His proffered gift,
From defeat your life He now would lift;
Simply trust if you would victor be,
He can set you absolutely free. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
