Unchained-stanza-1Bound am I not with chains of mortal flesh,
Nor doth the fetters thereof cut the flesh
Neither doth my heart bleed within me
And crieth for the freedom of the soul.

Unchained-stanza-2For surely as I knoweth of the Spirit,
And in the wholeness thereof ~
And it bindeth me not, nor cutteth the flesh,
Neither doth the Spirit bleed;

Unchained-stanza-3For there is within all these things of the Spirit
Only that which is complete unto Itself
And in such completeness do I find Immortal Joyousness.
