Free at Last

Representative Text

Refrain:
Free at last, free at last,
I thank God I'm free at last;
Free at last, free at last,
I thank God I'm free at last.
O free at last, free at last,
I thank God I'm free at last;
Free at last, free at last,
I thank God I'm free at last.

1 'Way down yonder in the graveyard walk,
I thank God I'm free at last.
Me and my Jesus goin' to meet and talk,
I thank God I'm free at last. O [Refrain]

2 Ona my knees when the light passed by,
I thank God I'm free at last.
Thought my soul would rise and fly,
I thank God I'm free at last. O [Refrain]

3 Some of these mornings, bright and fair,
I thank God I'm free at last.
Goin' meet King Jesus in the air,
I thank God I'm free at last. O [Refrain]
