1 How glad I am there is room for me
In the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
How glad I am that his grace is free!
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus!

Refrain:
There is joy in my heart, great joy today;
I am pressing t’ward the kingdom in the bright, shining way;
There is joy in my heart, great joy today,
For I soon shall be at home with Jesus.

2 How glad I am there is room for all
In the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
How glad I am that he heard my call;
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus! [Refrain]

3 How glad I am for the love I share
In the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
How glad I am that he brought me there;
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus! [Refrain]

4 How glad I am that I found the way
To the blessed, blessed fold of Jesus!
That I now can feel, and I now can say,
What a precious, loving Friend is Jesus! [Refrain]
