“I’m A Prisoner Of Love”

with 6 comments

My wife and I have been singing old songs in our van as we’ve traveled down the road recently. We’ve especially sung this old song written by Dottie Rambo and made dear to our hearts by Sis. Emile O’Brien. For some reason we can’t quit singing these words.


By Dottie Rambo


When I came to Jesus I settled it all.

I gave him my life to control,

Neither fear no persuasion could draw me to Christ.

But His love has captured my soul


He holds me secure with his love strong and true.

I’m happy his servant to be.

In bondage to Jesus forever I’ll stay

My soul doesn’t want to be free.


I’m a prisoner of love (I’m a prisoner of love)

A slave to the master

I willingly toil (I willingly toil)

Through the heat and the cold

I seek no reward (I seek no reward)

In this world below.

But a payday will come (but a payday will come)

When the pearly gates unfold.
