I am free from condemnation, Jesus' blood has made me free

Author: Charles A. Tindley
Tune: [I am free from condemnation] (Tindley)
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I am free from condemnation,
Jesus' blood has made me free,
I am now a new creation,
Hallelujah, He saves me.

I believe it, I believe it,
Jesus died to set me free.
On the cross He bought my pardon,
Hallelujah, He saves me.

2 All the world has been forsaken,
Now and evermore shall be,
Jesus for my "all" I've taken,
Hallelujah, He saves me. [Refrain]

3 All my life has been a failure,
Naught but sin and misery,
'Til in Christ I found sweet pleasure,
Hallelujah, He saves me. [Refrain]

4 Now if living or if dying,
Just as He would have it be,
Jesus always satisfying,
Hallelujah, He saves me. [Refrain]
