They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.@Isaiah 35:10

James P. Sullivan, 1930. This song was dedicated to Bishop Arthur J. Moore.

Mildred E. Sullivan (🔊 pdf nwc).

There is a song in my heart today,
Something I never had;
Jesus has taken my sins away,
O! say, but I’m glad.

Refrain

O! say, but I’m glad, I’m glad,
O! say, but I’m glad,
Jesus has come and my cup’s overrun;
O! say, but I’m glad.

Wonderful, marvelous love He brings,
Into a heart that’s sad;
Through darkest tunnels the soul just sings,
O! say, but I’m glad.

Refrain

We have a fellowship rich and sweet,
Tongues can never relate;
Abiding in Him: the soul’s Retreat,
O! but say, I’m glad.

Refrain

Won’t you come to Him with all your care,
Weary and worn and sad?
You, too, will sing as His love you share,
O! say, but I’m glad.
