They came within the hall in state
With all the pomp and power accrued
By those the world considers great.
Yet happy in their presence stood
A man in bonds.

What caused the happiness of Paul?
He was the freest there because
Each other soul within that hall
Under sin’s awesome burden was
A man in bonds.

Moved by the Saviour to repent
And finding Christ as his reward
Paul could be happy and content
To be, as “prisoner in the Lord”,
A man in bonds.
