Joyful, Joyful, We adore Thee

Joyful joyful we adore You
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before You
Opening to the sun above

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of Eternal gladness
Fill us with the light of day

You are the One who saves
You are the One who saves
You are the One who’s hands lift us from the grave
You are the Light of life
The everlasting day
You are the One who takes all our sins away

You are giving and forgiving
Ever blessing, ever blessed
Fountain of the joy of living
Ocean depths of happy rest

Jesus You are my Rescue
Jesus You are my Rescue
I give You everything I am. 

This is what happens – beautiful lyrics etched upon one’s heart, after emerging from one humbling, meaningful worship service. These words serenade, encourage, and lifts up one’s Spirit!

HS! HS! Haha.

“Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”

Matthew 16: 24-26

Learning deeply, truly, what this means.

Sola Gratia.
