8234. Lost But Found

1 Oh, the joy that fills my heart!
Oh, the grateful tears that start,
When I think of Jesus’ love!
How He came that He might bear
All my weight of sin and care,
How He came from Heav’n above.

Refrain:
Endless praise, endless praise
To the Lord my soul shall raise;
Lost but found, O happy strain!
Dead but now I live again.

2 Lost but found, oh, wondrous thought!
To His fold in mercy brought;
Saved by grace, His grace divine.
Heir with Him of bliss untold,
Soon His glory I’ll behold,
What a blessèd hope is mine! [Refrain]

3 Lost but found! I now can sing
Victory through my Savior king,
Victory every day and hour;
Victory still will be my song
When I join the ransomed throng,
Victory o’er the tempter’s power. [Refrain]

4 Oh that all the world would prove
How a pardoning God can love,
How He waits for all who come!
O that all the world might see
What His grace hath done for me!
How He welcomes wanderers home. [Refrain]
