So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today?

Always something new in Jesus

Earthly sweets will sometime cloy

Full Text

1 Earthly sweets will sometime cloy,
Passing pleasures lose their joy,
But in Jesus there is always something new;
Some bright token of his love,
Bearing blessing from above,
Like the freshness of the morning dew.

Refrain:
Wonderful joy, wonderful joy,
Wonderful joy he gives,
Joy that forever lives!
Wonderful joy, wonderful joy,
Riches, abiding, true,
Always in Jesus now,
Wonderful joy, wonderful joy.

2 There is always something new.
When his bidding we pursue,
In his service there are never-failing charms;
For the more we do his will
We will know him better still,
Rest more sweetly in the Saviour's arms. [Refrain]

3 There is always something new.
Angels look, and worship too,
While the treasures of redeeming grace unfold;
Heaven's day is none too long
For the everlasting song.
When the King of glory we behold. [Refrain]
