I was in a dungeon
Locked up in darkness
With fetters around me
A captive in bondage

I said no, this is not life
He who sat on the throne
And his son who sits on his right hand
Have the power to save me

I cried to Jesus Christ
To free my soul and body
To see his light
To free me from these fetters

In His merciful and gracious spirit
His glory illuminated in my life
By His powers the fetters were broken
I saw the lamp of light from above

The hope of peace
The growth of faith
The belief of truth
Jesus Christ is the prince of peace
