Verse 2: 

He left His Father’s throne above 

So free, so infinite His grace

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray 

I woke the dungeon flamed with light 

My chains fell off, my heart was free 

I rose, went forth, and followed Thee

No condemnation now I dread 

Jesus, and all in Him, is mine 

Alive in Him, my living Head 

And clothed in righteousness divine 

Bold I approach th’eternal throne 

And claim the crown, through Christ my own
