'Tis the angels' joy in heaven,

There's no other name like Jesus;

When in glory He appears,
'Tis the hope to hear His welcome,
That my fainting spirit cheers. [Refrain]

4 If He wills that I should labor
In His vineyard day by day,
Then 'tis well if only Jesus'
Blesses all I do or say. [Refrain]

5 If He wills that death's cold finger
Touch my feeble, mortal clay,
Then 'tis well if only Jesus
Is my dying trust and stay. [Refrain]
