Representative Text

1 Create within me, O Lord,
A heart that’s pure and clean;
Restore unto me the joy
Of Thy salvation serene.

2 Chorus:
The joy of the Lord
Is our strength today;
Then sing and shout, giving glory,
As homeward we march on our way.

3 O Lord, the fruit of Thy Spirit
Is love and joy and peace.
We pray Thee, fill us, dear Saviour,
And all these graces increase.

4 Yes, Lord, in Thee we’ll rejoice,
For Thou hast made us free.
We’ll tell Thy love and Thy mercy,
And sinners converted shall be.

5 Oh, why should Christians be murm’ring,
With such a promise rare,
That if to Christ we are faithful,
A crown of life we shall wear?
