1 When I was treading the pathway of wrong,
When I was bound by the fetters so strong,
When I had lost all my sunshine and song,
It was Jesus who set me free.

Refrain:
It was Jesus who set me free,
It was Jesus who set me free;
Now every chain has been broken in twain,
It was Jesus who set me free.

2 When for my soul there was no one to care,
When condemnation seemed mine everywhere,
When I was bound by the chains of despair,
It was Jesus who set me free. [Refrain]

3 When on my pathway no light seemed to shine,
When I was dreading the judgment divine,
When evil powers seemed all to combine,
It was Jesus who set me free. [Refrain]

4 When I am singing His glory and praise,
Marvelous, wonderful, infinite grace,
That He should suffer and die in my place—
It was Jesus who set me free. [Refrain]
