1 Ah! what is happiness complete?
Ah! tell me, if you know;
I’d seek that wonderful retreat
And to its altar go.

Oh, this is happiness complete:
To fall at Jesus’ feet,
And at the blood-stained mercy seat
The loving Christ to meet.

2 Yes, this is happiness complete
In Jesus Christ to rest;
He is the wonderful retreat
Where you are saved and blest. [Refrain]

3 Here is the altar where you may
In sweet contentment bow;
Where every sorrow flies away,
Come, and accept it now. [Refrain]

4 I hear the invitation sweet;
Ah! Christ, I come to Thee,
Where happiness is mine complete
To all eternity. [Refrain]
