Representative Text

1 There is joy within my soul today,
And my life is filled with wondrous light;
From the throne of Him who reigns above,
Cometh peace that makes my pathway bright.

Refrain:
There is joy, there is joy,
There is joy within my soul today;
There is joy, there is sweetest joy,
There is joy within my soul today.

2 Thro’ the clouds that many times arise,
O’er the billows of life’s restless sea,
Shines the glory of the Savior’s face,
As a blessèd beacon light for me. [Refrain]

3 So I gladly trust and press along,
In my journey to the goal above,
Shielded by His arm from day to day,
Cheered by His sweet presence and His love. [Refrain]
