The joy of having my savior

*****

What a joy is it to have you Lord?

To know when all falls, I can look above

In the depth of my sorrow I see joy

Beholding the one who grants me true joy

The joy of having a Savior

*****

When I walk in darkness I see light

In sorrow I find happiness

And when I should cry I but laugh

For I know the secret behind true joy

The joy springing to eternal joy

*****

What more joy can there be than to be forgiven

To know that the Lord counts no sin as mine

To know of a hope too amazing to comprehend

Of the Savior who died for my wretchedness

That such a vile soul becomes an everlasting saint

*****

I could have nothing but this hope only

Yet in this I have everything more than I can tell

What a joy, how privileged am I?

How privileged are they who are called by Jesus name?

Never was there a people so lucky.

*****

Help me Lord to remember what I have in you

To know that you are my joy and treasure

That in the darkness of the world I have found light

And in tears you have given me laughter

The outflow of unending joy in you

*****
