Representative Text

1. Oh, I am so happy in Jesus,
His blood has redeemed me from sin;
I weep and I sing in my gladness,
To know He is dwelling within.

Oh, I am so happy in Jesus,
From sin and from sorrow so free;
So happy that He is my Savior,
So happy that Jesus loves me.

2. Oh, I am so happy in Jesus,
He taught me the secret of faith,
To rest in believing His promise,
And trust whatsoever He saith. [Refrain]

3. Oh, I am so happy in Jesus,
I lay my whole soul at His feet;
The love He has kindled within me
Makes service and suffering sweet. [Refrain]

4. Oh, I am so happy in Jesus,
If earth in His love is so blest,
What joy in His glorified presence,
To sit at His feet as His guest. [Refrain]
