Representative Text

1 There is wondrous joy when the Savior’s voice we hear,
When His blood from condemnation frees us;
But a deeper bliss shall in Heav’n to us appear,
When we greet the souls we brought to Jesus!

Refrain:
That will be a gladness! That will be a joy!
When we greet the souls we brought to Jesus!
Oh, what songs of praise shall our ransomed pow’rs employ,
When we greet the souls we brought to Jesus!

2 When from sin and shame souls to holiness ascend,
Boundless joy and holy rapture seize us;
Deeper bliss awaits, ecstasy that shall not end,
When we greet the souls we brought to Jesus!

3 Labor shall be sweet, trials cease to harm or fret,
From our burdens sore this hope will ease us;
In our crowns of life Christ will wondrous jewels set,
For we’ll greet the souls we brought to Jesus! [Refrain]

4 Then we’ll labor on, striving souls for Christ to win,
Earthly joys ne’er satisfy or please us;
Looking to the end, when Heav’n’s courts we enter in,
When we greet the souls we brought to Jesus! [Refrain]
