Deep within, the heart has always known that there is freedom, Somehow breathed into the very soul of life. The prisoner, the powerless, the slaves have always known it. There’s something that keeps reaching for the sky.
And even life begins because a baby fights for freedom, And songs we love to sing have freedom’s theme. Some have walked through fire and flood to find a place for freedom. And some faced hell itself for freedom’s dream.
Refrein: Let freedom ring, wherever minds know what it means to be in chains. Let freedom ring, wherever hearts know pain. Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key. You can be free, and you can sing; let freedom ring!
God built freedom into every fiber of creation, And He meant for us to all be free and whole. But when my Lord bought freedom through the blood of His redemption, His cross stamped pardon on my very soul.
I’ll sing it out with every breath! I’ll let the whole world hear it. This halleluja anthem of the free. That iron bars and heavy chains can never hold us captive. The Son has made us free, and free indeed!
