Joyful in Jesus

"O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation" (Psalm 95:1).  "The memory of the Just is blessed... and He addeth no sorrow with it" (Proverbs 10:7,22).  "According to the word that I covenanted with you... so My Spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not" (Haggai 2:5).  "Jesus... stood in the midst and... showed unto them His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord" (John 20:19,20). 

O come with joyful celebration
And sing to Jesus Christ our Savior,
Who is the Rock of our salvation,
The Fountainhead of heaven's favor! 

The memory of the Just is blest
When we are musing on our Lord
As all His promises attest
That Christ Himself is our Reward. 

As Jesus showed His hands and side
To His disciples in the room,
They worshipped Him who for them died,
Rejoicing in His empty tomb.   

Receive our joyful praise, O Christ,
As we approach You with thanksgiving:
To save us You were sacrificed;
To keep us You are ever living!
