Enslaved by sin and Satan’s power,
My heart was filled with gloom of night;
But Jesus came in that sad hour,
And purged my soul and made it white.


Rejoice, rejoice, I am so free;
I am so free, I am so free,
And I will work for His delight,
For Christ is everything to me,
He purged my soul and made it white.

While living thus I felt sin’s weight,
But God’s dear Son did set me free,
And I can ne’er forget the date,
When He did say, Thy light I’ll be.


That light so sweet, to me ’twas dear,
When once I knew His love so deep,
And now I live without a fear,
For God my soul in Christ doth keep.
