The One Who sets the captives 
Has captivated me. 

We, who have been 
     released from the 
     dark thralldom of 
     domination and death, 
Live enthralled with 
Our Lord Jesus Christ 
     Who victoriously 
     brought us 
into His 
glorious kingdom 
      of light. 

We shout the shout of 
     liberated ones. 
Our praise ascends 
To the One 
     Who ascended 
on high, 
The One Who led 
captivity captive.

Therefore it is said,
When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive
[He led a train of
vanquished foes]
and He bestowed gifts
on men.
Ephesians 4:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
