I Love, I Love My Master

Fanny Crosby
(1820-1915)

  • 5And if the servant shall plainly say, “I love my master… I will not go out free:” 6Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever..
  • Exodus 21:5-6 kjv


“I love, I love my Master,
I will not go out free,”
For He is my Redeemer;
He paid the price for me.
I would not leave His service,
It is so sweet and blest,
And in the weariest moments
He gives the truest rest.

My Master shed His life-blood
My vassal life to win,
And save me from the bondage
Of tyrant self and sin.
He chose me for His service,
And gave me power to choose
That blessèd, perfect freedom,
Which I shall never lose.

I would not halve my service,
His only it must be!
His only, who so loved me,
And gave Himself for me.
Rejoicing and adoring,
Henceforth my song shall be,
“I love, I love my Master,
I will not go out free!”
