Lyrics

I longed to be made free from sin,
And come into the fold;
The Savior found me, took me in,
There’s joy in my soul!

Refrain

There’s joy in my soul!
There’s joy in my soul!
I’m happy in the Savior’s love,
There’s joy in my soul!

I’m on my way to Canaan’s land,
To Heaven’s blessèd goal
I’m happy for I’ve pardon found,
There’s joy in my soul!

Refrain

I’m sitting at the Savior’s feet,
I’ve come into the fold;
In Him I’m saved and made complete,
There’s joy in my soul!

Refrain

I’ve found a Savior dear to me,
More precious than gold;
He saved my soul and made me free,
There’s joy in my soul!
