I was once a jailbird
In a cage with broken wings
And without new songs to sing
With no way out and nowhere else to go

I was once a prisoner
in a cell made out of stone
built up high all on my own
Killing time while waiting on death row

And then shone a light into that room
You walked inside and then you held aloft the keys
And my chains fell off inside that tomb
I walked outside and sang ‘Jesus has set my free!’

And instead of serving my time
I’ll serve You with my whole life
now I know that Jesus has set me free!
