Representative Text

1 My soul is so happy in Jesus,
For He is so precious to me;
His voice it is music to hear it,
His face it is heaven to see.

Refrain:
I am happy in Him,
I am happy in Him;
My soul with delight
He fills day and night,
For I am happy in Him.

2 He sought me so long ere I knew Him,
When wand’ring afar from the fold;
Safe home in His arms He hath bro't me,
To where there are pleasures untold. [Refrain]

3 His love and His mercy surround me,
His grace like a river doth flow;
His Spirit, to guide and to comfort,
Is with me wherever I go. [Refrain]

4 They say I shall some day be like Him,
My cross and my burden lay down;
Till then I will ever be faithful,
In gathering gems for His crown. [Refrain]
