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

Full Text

1 Free as a bird that escapes from the nest,
Leaving the snare that the fowler has set;
Sing hallelujah! he cancels our debt,—
All the demands of the law have been met.

Refrain:
Free from the bondage and service of sin,
Free from the labor, the strife, and the din;
Free from the fetters that bound us so long,
We will rejoice in the Lord great and strong.

2 Free from the cloud that enveloped the law,
Bathed in the light that the prophets foresaw,
He our Redeemer to him all will draw;
Come and behold him with rapture and awe. [Refrain]

3 Glory to God! for our sentence is stayed,
All is fulfilled, and the sacrifice made;
Precious and priceless, unmeasured, unweighed,
Ample atonement! our ransom is paid! [Refrain]
