Hymnody

What Joy and Cheer Come unto Me

 What joy and cheer come unto me
When Jesus’ servant speaks to me
That word of mercy, grace, and peace
Which doth bestow from sin release. 

No other word can joy my heart

And ever bid my fears depart

Save that which cometh forth from Christ:

“Thou too receivest Paradise.”

 

A certain Word this e’er remains.

‘Tis sure!  It also e’er contains

A pardon which is full and free

Therefore, O Lord, I sing to Thee:

 

“O blessed Christ I give Thee praise

For Thou hast giv’n those wondrous keys

Which shall unlock the gates to heav’n

For those who’ve had their sins forgiv’n.”

 

Such grace divine is giv’n to men,

O Lord, ‘tis great – beyond our ken – 

And giv’n so we assured may be

That our sins were absolved by Thee.
