Since Christ my soul from sin set free

1
Since Christ my soul from sin set free,
This life has been a joy to me;
And ’mid earth’s sorrows and its woe,
’Tis joy my Jesus here to know.
  O hallelujah, yes, ’tis joy!
For it is Christ that I enjoy!
On land or sea, what matters where?
  Where Jesus is, my joy is there.
2
The earth was once a bitter place
Till Jesus showed His smiling face;
Now joy’s begun within my soul,
’Twill last while endless ages roll.
3
What matters where on earth we dwell?
On mountain top, or in the dell,
In cottage, or a mansion fair,
Where Jesus is, my joy is there.

I am short of words to express how I feel! This hymn is heavenly! Lord Jesus You are God! You are Man! You are heaven on earth! How is it that you have accomplished so much for God and for Man?

Lord show us more of Yourself. Lead us as the Spirit of reality into all the reality of the Triune God. Thank You for all the gifts in Your body to build up Your dwelling place on earth. Amen!

Where Jesus is my joy is there! Lord make this completely true to each one of us. Amen!
