Lyrics

When a sinner comes, as a sinner may,
There is joy, there is joy;
When he turns to God in the Gospel way,
There is joy, there is joy.

Refrain

There is joy among the angels,
And their harps with music ring,
When a sinner comes repenting,
Bending low before the King.

When a soul is born in the kingdom bright,
There is joy, there is joy;
When it walks by faith in the Gospel light,
There is joy, there is joy.

Refrain

When a pilgrim comes to the river wide,
There is joy, there is joy;
When he dwells secure on the other side,
There is joy, there is joy.
