No. 157 Happy in Jesus

(Sing to Tune on Opposite Page)–by which they mean “The Kindest Rule”.

Verse 1:
I am happy, oh, so happy,
Precious Savior, in Thy love;
I could sing from morn to even,
Like the blessed ones above.
I could tell of Thy sweet mercy
Through the bright, bright, sunny day,
And in joy and adoration
Pass the blissful hours away.

Refrain:
I am happy, oh, so happy,
I am happy, oh, so happy,
I am happy, yes, I’m happy,
Precious Savior, in Thy love.

Verse 2:
I am happy, oh, so happy,
For I know that Thou art mine,
And Thy Spirit witness whispers
That I am a child of Thine;
And an heir to life and glory
In the deathless summer land,
Where with saints and shining angels
In my white robes I shall stand.

Verse 3:
I am happy, oh, so happy,
And my heart is light and free
As the bonnie birds above me,
Warbling joyous melody;
I will sing of Thee, my Savior,
Bless Thee with my feeble breath,
Till my eyes are closed to life-light,
and my earth-songs hushed in death.

No. 35 Come Into the Light

Children of the light, why stay in the darkness,
Stumbling along in its gloom and night?
Come to the light, it is shining so brightly,
Come out of the darkness, come into the light,

Shining so bright,
Shining for thee, for thee;
It will brighten thy light,
It will lighten its strife,
It will fill thy soul with joy.

Darkness and night fade away at His sight;

Leave all your follies, come into the light.

Even the teardrop shall glitter as gold;
Shadows of earth shall vanish in noon-day,
Warmth and comfort exchange for your cold.

Once I was blind, but now I can see;
