Deep within the heart has always known that there was freedom
Somehow breathed into the very soul of life
The prisoner, the powerless, the slave have always known it
There's something that keeps reaching for the sky

Even life begins because a baby fights for freedom
And songs we love to sing have freedom's theme
Some have walked through fire and flood to find a place of freedom
And some faced hell itself for freedom's dream

Let freedom ring wherever minds know what it means to be in chains
Let freedom ring wherever hearts know pain
Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key
We can be free and we can sing --- let freedom ring

God built freedom into every fiber of creation
And He meant for us to all be free and whole
When my Lord bought freedom with the blood of His redemption
His cross stamped pardon on my very soul

I'll sing it out with every breath, I'll let the whole world hear it
This hallelujah anthem of the free
That iron bars and heavy chains can never hold us captive
The Son has made us free and free indeed

Let freedom ring down through the ages from a hill called Calvary
Let freedom ring wherever hearts know pain
Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key
You can be free and you can sing let freedom ring
Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key
You can be free and you can sing let freedom ring
You can be free and you can sing --- let freedom ring --- let freedom ring

    My favourite male vocalist David Phelps. The gators vocalists are great but when David touches the song with that potent voice that God has blest him with there is a total transformation in the song. He sings with every fiber of his being Let freedom ring. I just feel like I'm off the ground when this song is being sung. Brothers keep singing for Jesus. Angels will fold their wings to listen redemption story when we get over there I want to be in that glorious mass choir when we get to glory land. I am looking forward to that glorious day. Hope to meet you there.

    This song means so much. I love how it touches on the very meaning of freedom. You can apply it to both patriotic and spiritual standpoints. There is freedom in serving the risen savior. A lot of people don't understand how we can, as Christians, say that we are free when there's a definite outline of servitude that's described in the bible when it pertains to being saved and obeying God. Our entire purpose of existence is to praise God, to be in constant communion with him. We were built to serve. In Matthew 6:24 the bible says, No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Before I received the salvation of the Lord I was a slave to many things. Alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, and social standing. When I gave my life to him, he delivered me from all of it, yes all of it. I feel more free in who I am now than I ever did , "doing whatever I wanted". God doesn't just change your life around you, he changes who you are. He gives you a freedom you'll never know without him. That's what this song means to me. Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key.
