1 My soul is glad today,
A joy within me springs,
A happy song of love and praise
My raptured spirit sings.

My heart is overflowing with his love,
With love and joy divine;
For God has taken all my sins away,
And perfect peace is mine.

2 No sky of deepest blue,
No sun with brightest beams,
Could make a day so fair as this
Whose glory o’er me streams. [Refrain]

3 No more may earthly things
My thought and love divide;
I’ve something better far than these,
And I am satisfied. [Refrain]

4 In vain may doubts molest,
In vain may fears assail,
My hope is anchored sure and fast
To that within the veil [Refrain]

5 O what a rest is mine!
What bliss to me is giv’n!
My being thrills with ecstasy—
A sweet foretaste of heave’n. [Refrain]

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
