He Broke the Chains
      (William Burton Walbert)

Once I was down in sins dark prison
No one around to lead this place
I had no hope, no cause for living
But then Jesus came, He broke the chains

Chorus:
He broke the chain of fear & sorrow
He broke the chain of sin & shame
He wrote my name way up in glory
Since Jesus came, He broke the chain

In the tomb He laid,
      Such a cold, dark prison
And for all the world, for all mankind
Then Mary cried, My Lord has risen!
From death He came, He broke the chains

Jesus Shidchid
      (Eugene Cody dinkehjgo yiilaa)
