The Word Of God Is Not Bound

When Paul the great apostle
Was caged in a Roman prison
Awaiting Emperor Nero’ pleasure
Though he erred not by any measure
His corporal body was chained
While his inner spirit-man soared
Though he suffered-we gained
For the truth keeps marching on
Almost all the apostles died for the Way
Yet the Word of God was not bound
The bloody harvest of death and pain
Merely stimulated the new grain
Today more are persecuted and killed
For daring to affirm the risen Lord
Still the Word cannot be bound
And the path from Cross to Glory
Is dripping with righteous blood shed
For the free and full Gospel story
