Representative Text

1 There is joy, great joy, we are told,
When the wandering sheep has been found;
And the Shepherd, with tenderest care,
Restores it and binds up its wounds.

There is joy great joy,
'Mong the angels surrounding the throne;
There is joy, great joy,
When the wandering sinner comes home.

2 There is joy in heaven, we're told,
When a penitent sinner returns;
The angels rejoice as they see
The love that for him ever burns. [Chorus]

3 The heav'nly Shepherd, in love,
Stands ready to welcome you in;
The angels imploringly sing,
Return from the mountains of sin. [Chorus]
