Hymn/Song Information

Thereís joy on earth and joy in heaven




Thereís joy on earth, and joy in heaven;
Another sinner is forgiven;
Another wandering child has come
Back to his Fatherís happy home.


Eternal thanks, O God, to thee,
A soul is saved, a slave is free;
Who Satanís heavy chain hath broke,
To take the Saviourís easy yoke.


Rescued from danger and distress,
He hath found solid happiness;
And now baptized at Christís command,
Among his followers loves to stand.


Oh, may our brother be endued
With courage, strength, and fortitude;
In wisdom, and in grace increase,
Live in thy fear, and die in peace.


And may thy Spirit, day by day,
Draw others from the downward way;
Seek out and save the sad and lost,
And add them to thy ransomed host.
