5. 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 blessed hope is mine! [Refrain]

3 Lost but found! I now can sing
Vict’ry through my Saviour King,
Vict’ry ev’ry day and hour;
Vict’ry still will be my song
When I join the ransom’d throng,
Vict’ry o’er the tempter’s power. [Refrain]

4 O that all the world would prove
How a pard’ning God can love,
How he waits for all who come!
O that all the world might see
What his grace hat done for me!
How he welcomes wand’rers home. [Refrain]
