Representative Text

1 O the great joy that I find in His service.
Working for Jesus from day unto day,
Praying and feasting on food pure and holy,
I'm on my heavenly way.

Refrain:
Joy, yes, 'tis joy in His service,
Joy that descends from above;
Working and watching and waiting and praying,
Kept by the Savior's love.

2 By faith each day I can view the great mansions,
Decked with the gems of a heavenly grace,
Angels sing sweetly the songs of redemption,
Jesus is in that place. [Refrain]

3 Day after day I will sing of His mercy,
For every hour His grace is anew,
I praise His name for I'm still on my journey,
Heaven is still in view. [Refrain]
