My hands and feet look shackled
But my spirit cries, “I’m free”
My body wracks with pain
Yet, my spirit cries, “I’m free”

The world looks on in wonder
They mock, and laugh, and scorn
All the more my spirit cries
Again and forevermore
“I’m free”


My home seems like a prison
But, my spirit cries, “I’m free”
Life may be unfair
Yet my spirit cries, “I’m free”

Sometimes the road seems long
And I can’t always find my way
But when I lack the faith
Jesus whispers
“You are free”


Not by might, nor by your power
Can you say, “I am free”
But it’s by the blood of Jesus
That your spirit cries, “I’m free”

So shake the shackles off
Defy pain, and shame, and fear
And don’t you worry about tomorrow
Because forever
You are free
