O how divine how sweet the joy When but




O how divine, how sweet the joy,
When but one sinner turns,
And, with an humble, broken heart,
His sins and errors mourns!


Pleas'd with the news, the saints below,
In songs their tongues employ;
Beyond the skies the tidings go,
And heav'n is fill'd with joy.


Well pleas'd, the Father sees and hears
The conscious sinner's moan:
Jesus receives him in his arms,
And claims him for his own.


Nor angels can their joy contain,
But kindle with new fire;
"The sinner lost is found," they sing,
And strike the sounding lyre.
