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]
