Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

617. Joy Among the Angels

1 There is joy, glad joy among the angels,
Joy in heav’n above,
When a soul returns from sin and folly
To the Savior’s love.

Refrain:
Joy among the angels,
Joy in heav’n above;
Joy on earth among the righteous,
When the wanderer returns to the fold.

2 There is joy on earth among the righteous,
Joy beyond compare,
When a soul returns to Christ for shelter—
Finds forgiveness there. [Refrain]

3 There is joy, more joy among the angels,
When the lost is found,
Than for nine and ninety of the righteous,
Who in grace abound. [Refrain]

4 There is joy on earth and up in heaven,
Joy exceeding great:
Sinner, come and seek the joy of pardon,
Come before too late. [Refrain]
