Rejoicing in Repentance

"He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned… He will deliver his soul… Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man" (Job 33:27-29).  "The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God" (Psalm 69:32).  "Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death… and he that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:4,30).  "Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth" (Luke 15:10).

Our loving God is wonderful
Who oftentimes will work with man
To rescue the repentant soul
Delivered through His gracious plan.

The humble sinner shall be glad
Who seeks Him with sincerity, 
But those who won't will wish they had,
Regretting this eternally. 

Man's riches cannot save from wrath;
They are abandoned when he dies. 
In Christ we find salvation's path,
And he that wins a soul is wise. 

O Lord, we are rejoicing too
With angels who have heard the sound
Of one's repentance that is true
When Your salvation has been found!
