“Freedom Hymn” honors those who have
sacrificed for our freedom, and
does so in
a rich Biblical context.
It bridges from
political freedom to
freedom in Christ.
The hymn is meaningful for patriotic services or
anytime freedom in Christ is celebrated.
The tune is familiar.
How sweet the freedom we enjoy!
How precious is our liberty!
O what a price have others paid
To save, protect, and keep us free!
Our Father, may the lives we live
Bring honor to this gift You give,
Bring honor to this gift You give.
A greater freedom now is ours
Through Jesus Christ, Your precious Son.
The brutal power of sin is gone,
The war with death forever won.
Now growing, Lord, in all You are,
We taste a freedom more profound.
We soon will drink a fuller joy
And rise to life and love unbound.
