Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

There is joy in heaven

Representative Text

1. All glory to the Saviour's name,
A sinner is forgiven;
A wand'rer has returned today,
And there is joy in heaven.

Glory, glory,
There is joy in heaven,
There is joy in heaven,
A wand'rer has returned today,
And there is joy in heaven.

2. 'Tis thro' the Father's wondrous gift,
The "Rock" for mortals riven,
That wand'rers may return today,
And cause such joy in heaven. [Chorus]

3. Another comes, all praise to God!
Yes, comes to be forgiven;
What joy on earth the sight affords,
And O, what joy in heaven! [Chorus]

4. And others, too, for whom our Lord
In agony has striven,
May come and freely be received,
And freely be forgiven. [Chorus]
