You hath He quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins.@Ephesians 2:1

C. W. Byron, in Warrior Songs for the White Cavalry, by Frank W. Sandford (Shiloh, Maine: Bible School, 1897).

Arranged by Warren Collins (🔊 pdf nwc).

When lost in sin, I came to Christ my Savior,
Who for me on the cross did die;
He banished sin and sadness,
And gave me joy and gladness;
Now I’m running over with joy! joy! joy!

Refrain

Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again,
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again;
He’s coming again, forever to reign,
He’s coming as King to reign.
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again,
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again;

The world quite failed to give me satisfaction,
Though its vain pleasures I did try;
An aching void they gave me,
From which the Lord did save me;
Now I’m running over with joy! joy! joy!

Refrain

And ever since I learned to live for Jesus,
Joy and peace came without alloy;
The Devil oft has tried me, but Jesus Christ inside me
Keeps me running over with joy! joy! joy!

Refrain

Poor wandering one, astray in sin and sadness,
Come to Christ who can sin destroy;
Although you are so wretched,
His arm is now outstretched,
To save your soul and give you perfect joy! joy! joy!

Refrain
