A light that shines in the darkness

Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
Fast bound by sin and nature’s night.
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.

Amazing love, how can it be,
That Thou, my God, should’st die for me?

(Charles Wesley, 1738)
