Joy Among the Angels

Representative Text

1 There is joy, glad joy among the angels,
Joy in heav’n above,
When a soul returns from sin and folly
To the Savior’s love.

Refrain:
Joy among the angels,
Joy in heav’n above;
Joy on earth among the righteous,
When the wanderer returns to the fold.

2 There is joy on earth among the righteous,
Joy beyond compare,
When a soul returns to Christ for shelter—
Finds forgiveness there. [Refrain]

3 There is joy, more joy among the angels,
When the lost is found,
Than for nine and ninety of the righteous,
Who in grace abound. [Refrain]

4 There is joy on earth and up in heaven,
Joy exceeding great:
Sinner, come and seek the joy of pardon,
Come before too late. [Refrain]
