10630. Freedom In Jesus

1 I’m happy in Jesus, rejoicing today;
And Jesus my Savior with me has His way;
The Comforter comes in my glad heart to stay;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free!

I’m free, free! gloriously free!
No longer by sin I am bound;
The precious blood cleanseth and satisfies me,
This freedom in Jesus I’ve found.

2 This freedom in Jesus means blessèd release,
From sin and from sinning forever to cease;
And freedom from self brings such infinite peace;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

3 This freedom in Jesus is glorious rest,
A peaceful reclining on His loving breast;
And when I just trust Him my soul is so blest;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

4 His love is so tender, His power so divine,
My all to His keeping I gladly resign;
A vessel of clay for my Lord to design;
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]

5 No longer I’m fettered, the Lord has control;
The clear light of Heaven breaks in on my soul;
I’ll sing while the years of eternity roll,
O glory to Jesus! I’m free! [Refrain]
