1 Full of joy and gladness shall our praises be,
Rising ever upward, Savior, unto Thee.
While Thy name we worship, kindly bend Thine ears;
And our glad thanksgiving grant, O Lord, to hear.
Happy hallelujahs we shall sing for joy,
Praises pure and perfect shall our tongues employ;
For Thy glory only, Jesus, we will sing,
We will praise and worship Thee, our Lord and King.
2 There’s no sweeter pleasure than Thy praise to sing,
There’s no truer worship than of Thee, our King.
May our hearts and voices blend in harmony,
May the praise be perfect that we offer Thee. [Refrain]
3 Thou art great and holy—still Thy name is love,
And Thou carest for us in Thy home above.
Heav’nly hosts adore Thee, still Thou lov’st to hear
Songs of joy and gladness from Thy children dear. [Refrain]
