Joy in Heaven

Representative Text

1 There is joy in heav'n today!
There is joy today,
O'er the lamb that is found again,
Far away from pastures green,
Wand'ring all alone
On the desolate, barren plain!

Glory to the Lord of Hosts,
Shout the morning stars on high,
Praise him ever, ye angels of light!
He has heard the distant cry
Of the lamb today,
And he bears it rejoicing home!

2 When a soul has gone astray,
From the narrow way,
And there seemeth no joy nor rest,
Jesus still is ever near,
Hearing night and day,
All the cries of the sin oppressed! [Chorus]

3 Sinner, bow with gratitude,
And, with heart subdued,
Plead his mercy and pardon free!
He will see the falling tear,
Hear the fervent pray'r,
And will tenderly welcome thee! [Chorus]
