1 Many years in bondage,
Struggling to be free,
Only freed, my Saviour,
When I trusted thee.

Refrain:
I am trusting, Lord, in thee;
Thy grace is full and free;
And as I trust,
Thou savest even me.
I am trusting, Lord, in thee;
Thy grace is full and free;
And as I trust,
Thou savest even me.

2 O, what blessed freedom!
Kept from every snare;
Not a pressing trouble;
Not a cumb’ring care. [Refrain]

3 Not a sin to bind me—
Make me Satan’s slave;
But a full salvation
Which my Jesus gave. [Refrain]

4 But if thou should’st ask me
How I came so free:—
Trusting every promise
Did it all for me. [Refrain]
