Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return

1
Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return,
And come with singing unto Zion;
And everlasting joy shall be upon their head.

Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return,
And come with singing unto Zion;
And everlasting joy shall be upon their head.

They shall obtain gladness and joy;
And sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
(Repeat the first three lines)

What Bible version is this song from? I also used to sing it many years ago. I read NKJV, but I checked KJV and NIV in YouVersion. I love singing the praises of the Lord!

This beautiful chorus that I learned many many years ago came to mind this morning as I was reading from the prophet Isaiah chapter 61:7. I haven’t heard this in years and can’t stop singing it. Praise God for the everlasting joy he gives to us.

This song is a a reminder of His words to us... promise of what is to come.

Be encouraged if the Lord is with us, who can stand against us. He is faithful to keep His promises. I first sang this song in the 1970's as Jesus moved in California and beyond bringing great revival and faith, joy, and authority to many people which continues today. California 2020.

Woke this morning with this hymn in my head. I haven't heard it play or sang it in years. What a God we serve to encourage us so.

Sing church, sing.
