Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith (born 1926) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #30 (1987) Meter: 220.127.116.11.8.7 Topics: Christ the Healer; Christ the Healer Lyrics: 1 Fill your hearts with joy and gladness,
sing and praise your God and mine!
Great the Lord in love and wisdom,
might and majesty divine!
He who framed the starry heavens
knows and names them as they shine.
2 Praise the Lord, his people, praise him!
wounded souls his comfort know;
those who fear him find his mercies,
peace for pain and joy for woe;
humble hearts are high exalted,
human pride and power laid low.
3 Praise the Lord for times and seasons,
cloud and sunshine, wind and rain;
spring to melt the snows of winter
till the waters flow again;
grass upon the mountain pastures,
golden valleys thick with grain.
4 Fill your hearts with joy and gladness,
peace and plenty crown your days;
love his laws, declare his judgments,
walk in all his words and ways;
he the Lord and we his children —
praise the Lord, all people, praise! Scripture: Psalm 147 Languages: English Tune Title: REGENT SQUARE
Fill your hearts with joy and gladness
