I was there

Mouin sonjé bi-in ki jou li té délivré-m, (I remember very well the day I was set free)
É mouin konnin mouin fini avèk péché, (and I know that I am done with sin)
Paské mouin jouin-n délivrans (because I have found deliverance)
É kè mouin fi-n asuré (and my heart is well assured)
Mouin sové nan péché pou toujou. (I am saved from sin forever)

Délivré! Délivré! (Delivered, Delivered)
Oui mouin sové nan péché pou toujou! (Yes, I am delivered from sin for ever)

Mouin sonjé bi-in ki jan kè-m té boulvèsé, (I remember how my heart was troubled)
É ki tristès ki té fè nan-m mouin an dèy.(and what sorrow overwhelmed my soul)
Min jé mouin ouè Jézu-Kri, (but my eyes have seen the Lord)
É kè mouin louvri ba li; (my heart opens up to him)
Tout chin-n mouin yo tonbé pou toujou. (All my chains shattered and fell forever)

Mouin sonjé bi-in ké sa pa té fèt fasil, (I remember that it wasn’t easy)
É mouin té rézisté ak Jézu anpil, (and I resisted with Jesus quite often)
Li pa-t vi-n pou kondanné, (He came not to condemn me)
É Li pran pasians avè-m (He was very patient toward me)
Jouk gnou jou, m-oblijé ouè lumiè. (‘Til one day, I saw the Light)

E sé pou tèt sa map chanté pou Jézu, (and this is why I sing evermore for Jesus)
É kè mouin plin é nan-m mouin gin gnou fréchè. (And my heart and my soul are filled with fresh dew)
Mouin pa kab pé, fòm chanté, (I cannot be silent, but must sing)
Mouin vlé mouri ap chanté: (I want to die singing…)
Alélouya! M-délivré pou toujou. (“Hallelujah, I am delivered for ever and evermore”)

Pou toujou, Amen.

Always and forever, delivered by grace. Amen.
