Scripture: Luke 1:47
1 In you is gladness Even in sadness,
Jesus, sunshine of my heart.
Freely bestowing gifts overflowing,
Dwell in us; do not depart,
Our souls awaking, Our bondage breaking.
Trusting you surely, We build securely On you our Savior: Alleluia!
With eagar longing We wait your dawning;
Living or dying On you relying, Now and forever: Alleluia!
2 When we are yours, We fear no powers;
Neither darkness, sin nor death.
You always bless us; Though woes distress us,
Turn our doubt to joyful faith.
Telling the story, Singing your glory,
With heart and voices All heav'n rejoices In you our Savior! Alleluia!
We sing with gladness, Gone is our sadness.
Our hymns ascending, Our praises blending In joy forever: Alleluia!
