207. The Happy People

1 Who but the Christian is happy and free,
Filled with the glory of God?
None in creation so happy as He,
Washed and redeemed in the wonderful blood.

Refrain:
Jesus, the one who my sorrows hath healed,
Thou are the one who my spirit hath sealed;
Only Thy glory from heaven revealed,
Only Thy favor can happiness yield.

2 Who but the ransomed can ever rejoice
Over the billows of time?
Grace all abounding and hope’s gentle voice,
Gladden their spirits that never repine. [Refrain]

3 How can a mortal in fetters of sin
Taste of a freedom divine?
Only where Jesus is dwelling within,
Comfort and liberty truly may shine. [Refrain]

4 Tell me not then of the pleasures that sting,
Coiled under roses of pride;
None but the holy and innocent sing,
Out of a bosom where pleasures abide. [Refrain]
