Come and rejoice with me

Come and rejoice with me!
For once my heart was poor,
And I have found a treasury
Of love, a boundless store.
Come and rejoice with me!
I, once so sick at heart,
Have met with One who knows my case,
And knows the healing art.
Come and rejoice with me!
For I was wearied sore,
And I have found a mighty arm
Which holds me evermore.
Come and rejoice with me!
My feet so wide did roam,
And One has brought me from afar,
To find in Him my home.
Come and rejoice with me!
For I have found a Friend
Who knows my heart's most secret depths,
Yet loves me without end.
I knew not of His love;
And He had loved so long,
With love so faithful and so deep,
So tender and so strong.
And now I know it all,
Have heard and known His voice,
And hear it still from day to day.
Can I enough rejoice?

Elizabeth Rundle Charles was a poet, author, linguist, musician, and painter, who became one of the best known women in England during the 19th century. She was born in Tavistock, Devonshire, January 2, 1828, to Joana and John Rundle, who was a banker, businessman, and member of Parliament. He was her true friend and guide, and her mother was her devoted, lifelong companion. Although not blessed with siblings, her childhood was filled with the delights of a loving extended family.

Elizabeth was educated at home in the classic disciplines, and was writing poetry by age 18. Near age 18, she was led to the Lord, and from the overflowing joy of her conversion, wrote the hymn and titled “Come and Rejoice with Me“

Elizabet was especially well-known for her many books, publishing her first – a translation from the German pietist Joachim Neander – at the age of 22. In 1863, her Chronicles of the Schoenberg-Cotta family – a historical novel about the childhood of Martin Luther – became the best known of her 50 books.

At age 23, she married Andrew Patton Charles, a lawyer and businessman. They were known for their philanthropic work among the poor of Wapping and Hempstead, including founding a home for incurables in 1885.

Andrew died 17 years after their marriage, but by abundance of grace from God – who both inspired her to write pervasively popular books of Christian history and literature, and blessed her with a flow of royalties – she was able to care for her loving mother and others for many years. Elizabeth died when she was 68 at Hempstead Heath, near London, March 28, 1896.

After hearing the Lord’s speaking from the book of Jeremiah, it is truly a testimony and a reality that the tender hearted God can come in to the parts of our heart and as Christ makes Him home in all the wounded places in our heart we become one with him. This is how He does the healing work all the glory belongs to Him! hallelujah!

Melodee and I chose this as one of our wedding hymns in 1982. Can I enough rejoice that from a boundless store of love, our Lord invited me this morning to come and rejoice with Him?
