I have found the joy of
In His sacred, blest abode,
Oh, the comfort of the peace that fills my soul!
And a day His courts within,
Far exceedeth all in sin,
In His secret presence I~ez_rsquo~m abiding.
I shall see Him, I shall see Him,
I shall see Him in His beauty over there;
In His likeness I~ez_rsquo~ll behold Him,
He is waiting for me at the portals.
Of my life the fountain spring,
Now my all to Thee I bring,
Thou, O Lord, art all my heart~ez_rsquo~s supreme delight!
Whom have I in heav~ez_rsquo~n but Thee?
None on earth so dear to me,
Thou alone art altogether lovely.
How the heav~ez_rsquo~nly chorus rings,
While my heart in rapture sings
Sweetest anthems of my Savior~ez_rsquo~s joyful praise;
He~ez_rsquo~s the fairest of the fair,
Nothing can with Him compare,
He~ez_rsquo~s to me the chief among ten thousand.
Take the world, for Christ is mine,
In His kingdom I would shine,
Let me labor all my days and years for Him:
Perfect love and bliss abound
In His presence, I have found,
Life is joy supreme and full of glory.
