When Paul found himself in prison
He chose to praise and sing,
And his prison became a palace
As he worshiped his Lord and King.
He chose to glorify God
Even while bound with chains;
And the prison walls resounded
With the songs of praise he sang.
When you feel like you're in bondage,
Like Paul, choose to praise and sing;
And your prison will become a palace
When you worship your Lord and King.

But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying
and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners
were listening to them. (Acts 16:25)
