Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
Free at last, free at last,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last.

Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
An aching heart and a hung down head,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last. [Refrain]

Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
Till I trusted Jesus' righteousness,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last. [Refrain]

Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
I'm happy now the livelong day,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last. [Refrain]

Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
How Jesus saved my soul from hell,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last. [Refrain]

Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
Sin has no power over me,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last. [Refrain]

Thank God Almighty I'm free at last;
The blood of Christ has done it all,
Thank God Almighty I'm free at last. [Refrain]
