1 There is a song in my heart today,
Something I never had;
Jesus has taken my sins away,
O say, but I’m glad!

O say, but I’m glad, I’m glad,
O say, but I’m glad@
Jesus has come and my cup’s overrun;
O say, but I’m glad!

2 Wonderful, marvelous love He brings,
Into a heart that’s sad;
Thru darkest tunnels the soul just sings,
O! say, but I’m glad! [Chorus]

3 We have a fellowship rich and sweet,
Tongues can ne'er relate;
Abiding in Him is a real treat,
O say, but it's great! [Chorus]

4 Won’t you come to Him with all your care,
Weary and worn and sad?
You, too, will sing as His love you share,
O say, but I’m glad! [Chorus]
