Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

O, Freedom

Full Text

1 O freedom! O freedom!
O freedom over me.

Refrain:
And before I'll be a slave,
I'd be buried in my grave,
and go home to my Lord and be free.

2 No more moaning, no more moaning,
no more moaning over me. [Refrain]

3 No more weeping, no more weeping,
no more weeping over me. [Refrain]

4 There’ll be singing, there’ll be singing’,
there’ll be singing over me. [Refrain]

5 There’ll be shouting, there’ll be shouting,
there’ll be shouting over me. [Refrain]

6 There’ll be praying, there’ll be praying,
there’ll be praying over me. [Refrain]
