1 I’ve found the life of truest joy,
My heart is overflowing;
By day and night my glad employ,
This secret to be showing.
Oh, the joy of loving Jesus,
Oh, the gladness that is giv’n;
When we know the Father sees us
One with Jesus there in Heav’n.
2 Once selfish joy I vainly tried,
And sought the world for pleasure;
Now self with Christ is crucified,
And He is all my treasure. [Refrain]
3 But now the truth that makes me free
Is like a well upspringing;
The risen Christ now lives in me,
And fills my soul with singing. [Refrain]Source: Northfield Hymnal: for use in evangelistic and church services, conventions, sunday schools, and all prayer and social meetings of the church and home #51
