1 Hearts full of gladness, once more we gather
Here in our cheerful Sabbath dwelling;
Anthems of rapture while we are swelling,
Praise we offer Thee, Lord, our King.
He crowneth us with blessings rare
How great His loving kindness!
While mercy, like an angel fair,
Leaves not a shadow of sadness;
Hearts full of gladness, praise our Redeemer,
In our beautiful home today.
2 Hearts full of gladness, once more we gather
Where our Redeemer oft has told us,
Under His watch care He will enfold us,
They that follow Him safe shall be. [Refrain]
3 Hearts full of gladness, O may we ever
Follow the foot-prints now before us;
Then will our Saviour, now watching o’er us,
Kindly welcome us home to Him. [Refrain]
