There once was a time when I was dead inside
I cussed the Lord for the day I was born
And prayed to the Devil to die
Just when I thought the Devil had won
Someone opened up the door
The King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

Chorus:
Now, he broke the chains that bound me, and now I’m free
Today I’m right where Mama
Prayed I’d be
I’m down on my knees
Now I believe
What Mama knew for sure
He’s King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

Now, if you’re in trouble friend, let me tell you what to do
I’ll tell you what he’s done for me
And I know what he’ll do for you
It makes no difference what you’ve done
You’ve a friend in the One that I adore
The King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

Repeat Chorus

He’s King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor
