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

I am free, I am free, I have broken away

I am free, I am free, I have broken away

Full Text

I am free! I am free! I have broken away,
From the chambers of night, to the splendors of day;
All the phantoms that darkened around me are gone,
And a spirit of light is now leading me on.

Earth appeareth in garments of beauty new drest;
Brighter thoughts, brighter feelings, spring forth in my breast;
Happy voices are floating in music above;
All creation is full of the glory of love.

God of truth! it is Thou who hast shed down each ray
Of the sunshine that blesses and gladdens my way;
From the depths of my spirit, to Thee will I give
Ever-thankful affection, as long as I live.
