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.
