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.

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]
