Though I be weak,
Let my spirit be free.
Though I be strong,
Let my spirit be free.

Though I be sick,
Let my spirit be free.
Though I be well,
Let my spirit be free.

Though I be poor,
Let my spirit be free.
Though I be rich,
Let my spirit be free.

Though I be sad,
Let my spirit be free.
Though I be happy,
Let my spirit be free.

Though I be bound,
Let my spirit be free.
Though I be free,
Let my spirit be free.

Whatever my trial,
Let me die unto me.
Whatever my trial,
Let my spirit be free.


(Explanatory note: Imma, a young Northumbrian warrior, captured by his
Mercian foes after the battle of Trent in 679, was said to have used
‘loosening runes’ carved on willow staves to make chains fall from him.
The strongest chains are not always visible)
