How greatly will my soul rejoice

How greatly will my soul rejoice

Published in 3 hymnals

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.
