Once in sin I served, a slave

  Once in sin I served, a slave,
In suff’ring and affliction;
Sin once held me captive, bound me,
Lorded over me.
Struggling vainly to escape,
I groaned in desperation,
Unaware that Jesus had set me free.
  His wondrous grace has found me!
From sin’s bondage I am freed,
I’m drinking living water, salvation’s bounteous feast;
Praise God! What riches! Oh what sweetness!
Overflowing joy and praise!
Oh, hallelujah! I’m saved by grace!
