1 With joyful hearts we hail the day
That finds us tracing all our way;
That bids us lift our eyes and see
The love that crowns our Jubilee.

2 Here we recall, with sweet accord,
The faithful servants of the Lord,
Who now from all their toil are free,
And sing with us our Jubilee.

3 Here we recount the deeds of grace
That made our house a holy place;
That taught our souls from sin to flee,
And gave us songs of Jubilee.

4 Lord, as Thy gracious hand we view,
Our former vows we here renew;
May all be found at last with Thee,
And join the heav’nly Jubilee.
