THE BONDS OF CHRIST

Hallgrim Petursson (1614-1674)

8.6.8.6 D

Jesus, the Son of God, was bound

That I might go forth free;

He, chafed with cruel fetters, found

Unbounded grace for me:

Around His wrists the cords of pain

Harsh, agonizing, lay:

From me in that dread hour sin's chain

Unfastened fell away.

Lord, let the bonds that bound Thee hold

Me bound in bondage pure,

Kept mid temptations manifold,

Shut from the world's allure;

That so my will, untrammelled, free,

Whiles here I dwell below,

May aye Thy ready servant be.

This boon, dear Lord, bestow!
