When I sat in darkness & in the deepest of gloom,
I was a prisoner, suffering in iron chains.
For I had rebelled against Your Word
and I despised Your councel.
You subjected me to bitter labor.
I stumbled; and there was no one to help me when I was in trouble.
Then You came & saved me from my distress.
You brought me out of darkness...
the deepest gloom...
and broke away my chains!
