(17 July 1674 – 25 November 1748 / Southampton / England)

Hymn 101


Joy in heaven for a repenting sinner.

Luke 15:7,10.

Who can describe the joys that rise
Through all the courts of Paradise,
To see a prodigal return,
To see an heir of glory born?

With joy the Father doth approve
The fruit of his eternal love;
The Son with joy looks down and sees
The purchase of his agonies.

The Spirit takes delight to view
The holy soul he formed anew;
And saints and angels join to sing,
The growing empire of their King.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
