THE JOY OF GOD           

Don Fortner


(Tune: O For A Thousand Tongues  #46 CM)


Behold the Lord our God, and know

He is a God of joy!

To praise His name let every saint

His ransomed pow'rs employ!


Our God rejoices in His works

Of providence and grace;

They all reveal His wisdom and

His power and goodness.


Above all else, God's pleasure is

In Jesus Christ, His Son,

In whom His name is magnified,

Who our salvation won!


God's joy is in His people too,

Because we are in Christ;

Yes, we are pleasing to the Lord

By faith in Jesus Christ!


Sinners by faith in Christ become

The objects of God's joy:

Oh, trust the Son of God today,

And please the God of joy!
