Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

How greatly will my soul rejoice

How greatly will my soul rejoice

Representative Text

1 How greatly will my soul rejoice!
How happy will I be:
When I shall hear my Saviour's voice,
Say come ye unto me.

2 O come ye blessed and possess,
Your kingdom is prepar'd:
For all your troubles and distress,
You have a great reward.

3 With joy I shall to Jesus go,
My Saviour, Lord and Friend,
And all my sorrows here below,
For evermore shall end.

4 There I shall dwell at his right hand,
And freed from ev'ry pain;
Remov'd from danger I shall stand,
And ne'er distress'd again.

5 There I shall eat that living bread,
And shall for ever live;
Drink of the fount and living head,
Which Christ my Lord shall give.

6 I shall be blest in Jesus' blood;
That blood which freely stream'd
By which I have access to God,
And know myself redeem'd.

7 My soul with joy is entertain'd,
In Jesus' kingdom here;
But greater treasures will be gain'd,
When I shall enter there.
