With tender love He broke the chain, removing all the bonds
That held me in their tightened grip for many years, and long;
I never knew the darkness that my soul was prisoned in,
Until His gracious Hand reached down and saved me from my sin;
Then bursting forth from mighty self, that never would let go,
I praised the God who set me free because He loved me so.
My guilt is gone, my heart is His, my soul is singing free-
Oh God of light and freedom, You are everything to me!
