Hymn/Song Information

JOYS OF SALVATION




Hark! Who are these, whose cheerful songs
In every state their lips employ;
This mirth to pardoned souls belongs,
To such alone belongs the joy.


When faith and love are on the wing,
And God removes their long distress,
Then every tongue is taught to sing,
And all their powers unite to bless.


Let sinners look from earth and sense,
The vain delights they prize and love;
Soon shall the joys they borrow thence,
Fading and unsubstantial prove.


But see, ten thousand sweets surround
The humble souls that love the Lord,
His mercies keep a constant round,
And still new cause of joy afford.
