THE JOY OF GOD
(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!
