My Secret of Joy

Author: C.A. Tindley Hymnal: Soul Echoes #14 (1909) Hymnal Title: Soul Echoes First Line: You ask me where I get the joys that make my heart so light Refrain First Line: Hallelujah! I belong to the King Lyrics: 1. You ask me where I get the joys That make my heart so light, Which all the gloom of day destroys And gives me songs at night. Chorus: Hallelujah! I belong to the King, I am saved now, and I have a right to sing, For the light from heaven fills my soul, And the night has passed away. 2. It is not wealth or land or gold, Nor health or honored fame, But joys of heaven in my soul A heav'n in Jesus' name. 3. I once was full of anxious fear, I tried, but failed to see, That all I needed was so near The Christ that died for me. 4. I counted much upon my state, Of goodness, sense, and birth, These only added to my fate, They had no place or worth. 5. I then gave up myself and all, And trusted to His care, Who sees the sparrows e'er they fall, And left my burden there. 6. I wish I had the tongue to tell, The comfort then was given, How my poor soul was brought from hell, And car'ied almost to heav'n. Languages: English Tune Title: [My secret of joy]
