Representative Text

1 A joyful song I love to sing
Of Jesus, of Jesus,
The chords that thro’ my spirit ring,
But speak of precious Jesus;
The blessèd name I can but sing;
Afar from home He sought me,
And in the fullness of His love,
His great salvation brought me.

Sing glory, sing glory!
And praise forever bringing;
The love of Jesus, precious love!
I cannot keep from singing.

2 My hope and joy, my sunshine bright,
Is Jesus, my Jesus;
His presence is my chief delight,
My heart is filled with Jesus:
And while that love throbs thro’ and thro’
In bonding pulse of pleasure,
My songs shall be both glad and free,
I would not change the measure. [Refrain]

3 Oh, come and join the songs I sing,
Of Jesus, of Jesus!
And let the glory-anthems ring,
Thro’ all the earth for Jesus;
Then all a-tune thy soul shall join
The angel choirs of Heaven;
The gates of pearl will soon unfurl,
And endless praise be given. [Refrain]
