Happy in the Savior

Representative Text

1 I am happy in the Lord for the love He showed to me,
And I’m resting on His precious promise;
Confiding in His Word, He will keep me pure and free,
And forever in His grace victorious.

Happy in the Savior,
Happy in the Savior,
Happy in the Savior,
I am happy in the Lord.

2 I am happy in the Lord since my sins are washed away,
I’ve His peace within my heart abiding;
He sanctified my soul, and the Blesser came to stay,
In the bosom of His love I’m hiding. [Refrain]

3 I am happy in the Lord, for He gives me life and breath,
And He sweetens all my days with pleasure;
He’s all I need on earth; He’s my vict’ry over death,
He’s the secret of that hidden treasure. [Refrain]

4 I am happy in the Lord for the place prepared for me,
Oh, how sweet the blessed consolation;
And though I fall asleep, I shall wake eternally,
In His likeness with His great salvation. [Refrain]
