1 My bondage is ended forever,
Today I am free, praise the Lord;
I’m living each moment in vict’ry,
My sins are all under the blood.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
My bondage is ended, I know;
And the blood, precious blood,
Is cleansing me whiter than snow.

2 My bondage is ended forever,
Forgiven, forgotten the past;

3 My bondage is ended forever,
Thro’ faith I am kept ev’ry hour;
My Lord, who redeemed and forgave me,
Is filling my heart with His pow’r. [Chorus]
