Lyrics

O Jesus, my Savior, with Thee I am blest,
My life and salvation, my joy and my rest;
Thy name be my theme, and Thy love be my song;
Thy grace shall inspire both my heart and my tongue.

Oh, who’s like my Savior, He’s Salem’s bright King;
He smiles and He loves me, and helps me to sing;
I’ll praise Him, I’ll praise Him with notes loud and clear,
While rivers of pleasure my spirit shall cheer.

I’m happy, I’m happy, oh, wondrous account!
My joys are immortal, I stand on the mount;
I gaze on my treasure and long to be there,
With Jesus and angels and kindred so dear.
