1 O joyful sound of gospel-grace,
Christ shall in me appear!
I, even I, shall see his face;
I shall be holy here.
2 The glorious crown of righteousness,
To me reach'd out I view;
Conqu'ror through him, I soon shall seize
And wear it as my due.
3 The promised land from Pisgah’s top,
I now exult to see;
My hope is full (O glorious hope!)
4 He visits now the house of clay;
He shakes his future home;
O would'st thou, Lord, on this glad day,
Into thy temple come.
5 With me, I know, I feel thou art,
But this cannot suffice,
Unless thou plantest in my heart
A constant paradise.
6 My earth thou wat'rest from on high,
But make it all a pool:
Spring up, O well, I ever cry,
Spring up within my soul.
7 Come, O my God, thyself reveal!
Fill all this mighty void:
Thou only canst my spirit fill;
Come, O my God, my God!
8 Fulfil, fulfil my large desires,
Large as infinity!
Give, give me all my soul requires,
All, all that is in thee!
