Edwin O. Excell (1851–1921)


My soul is so hap­py in Je­sus,
For He is so pre­cious to me;
His voice it is mu­sic to hear it,
His face it is Hea­ven to see.


I am hap­py in Him,
I am hap­py in Him;
My soul with de­light
He fills day and night
For I am happy in Him.

He sought me so long ere I knew Him,
When wan­der­ing afar from the fold;
Safe home in His arms He hath brought me,
To where there are plea­sures un­told.


His love and His mer­cy sur­round me,
His grace like a ri­ver doth flow;
His Spir­it, to guide and to com­fort,
Is with me wher­ev­er I go.


They say I shall some day be like Him,
My cross and my bur­den lay down;
Till then I will ev­er be faith­ful,
In ga­ther­ing gems for His crown.
