I am from sin set free
Let worldly minds the world pursue,
It has no charms for me;
Once I admired its trifles, too,
But grace hath set me free.
Free! free! free!
I am from sin set free!
This world has now no charms for me,
For Christ hath set me free.
Its pleasures can no longer please,
Nor happiness afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now, I have seen the Lord.
As by the light of opíning day,
The stars are all concealed;
So earthly pleasures fade away,
When Jesus is revealed.
Creatures no more divide my choice,
I bid them all depart;
His name, His love, His gracious voice,
Have fixed my roving heart.
