What joy to us is given through God’s unfailing love.

Is anything more wonderful and what can bring more joy

than when our lives are given in service, Lord, for Thee?

We live within His presence His grace and power we know

He gives His love so freely - our hearts with joy overflow.

Even though our lips are silent our hearts cry out to Thee.

Thy steadfast love never changes

Jesus, in Thee we find true peace.

And when our days are ending, we find eternal rest

Within His Holy presence, we are forever blessed.

We are sheltered there securely until that final day

when Christ returns in glory on resurrection day.

What mystery, what wonder awaits us in that land

for now we see but a shadow by then we’ll understand.

What joy is give through God’s unfailing love.
