Representative Text

1 There is joy among the angels who surround the throne above,
When the sinner comes repenting of his sin;
And the Father then receives him in his gracious arms of love,
And the Savior lovingly admits him in.

Refrain:
There is joy among the angels,
There is joy among the angels,
There is joy among the angels,
When a soul returns to Jesus and is saved.
There is joy among the angels,
There is joy among the angels,
There is joy among the angels,
When a soul returns to Jesus and is saved.

2 There is joy among the saints who fill the heav’nly courts on high,
When they see a brother, sister, or a friend
Coming back to Christ, and with a contrite heart for mercy cry,
Oh, ‘tis then that blessings sweet on all descend. [Refrain]

3 Yes, there’s joy, abundant joy, among the saints who dwell below,
When they see their friends returning home to God;
Oh, the shouts, the joyful shouts, from happy hearts with love aglow!
And the tidings, happy tidings, fly abroad. [Refrain]
