Joy in God’s grace

Created to rejoice,
but not in trivial things,
in knowing God’s rich grace,
the comforts Jesus brings.

Joy – we’re loved, embraced by the Lord
wonderful gospel, exult in his Word.

Christ Jesus took delight
in viewing past the grave
joy after suffering’s night
with those his death would save.

Our joy as others grow
in love, humility –
increasingly they show
Christ’s grace and purity.

Paul’s joy in service hard,
for saints – we honour all
those suffering for God’s Word
in pain their joy yet full.
