Philip P. Bliss (1838–1876)


Oh, how hap­py are we,
Who in Je­sus agree,
And ex­pect His re­turn from above;
We sit ’neath His vine,
And de­light­ful­ly join
In the praise of His ex­cel­lent love.


Oh, how hap­py are we
Who in Je­sus agree,
How hap­py, how hap­py are we.

When uni­ted to Him,
We par­take of the stream
Ever flow­ing in peace from the throne;
We in Je­sus be­lieve,
And the Spir­it re­ceive,
That pro­ceeds from the Fa­ther and Son.


We re­mem­ber the word
Of our cru­ci­fied Lord,
When He went to pre­pare us a place,
I will come in that day
And will take you away,
And ad­mit to the sight of My face.
