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 Im abiding.
I shall see Him, I shall see Him,
I shall see Him in His beauty over there;
In His likeness Ill 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 hearts supreme delight!
Whom have I in heavn but Thee?
None on earth so dear to me,
Thou alone art altogether lovely.
How the heavnly chorus rings,
While my heart in rapture sings
Sweetest anthems of my Saviors joyful praise;
Hes the fairest of the fair,
Nothing can with Him compare,
Hes 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.
