Happy Soul Who Sees the Day

Happy soul who sees the day,
The glad day of gospel grace!

Happy soul who sees the day,
The glad day of gospel grace!
Thee, my Lord (thou then wilt say)
Thee will I for ever praise;
Though thy wrath against me burned,
Thou dost comfort me again;
All thy wrath aside is turned,
Thou hast blotted out my sin.

Me, behold! thy mercy spares,
Jesus my salvation is:
Hence my doubts, away my fears!
Jesus is become my peace:
JAH, JEHOVAH, is my Lord,
Ever merciful and just;
I will lean upon his word,
I will on his promise trust.

Strong I am, for he is strong,
Just in righteousness divine:
He is my triumphal song;
All he has, and is, is mine;
Mine, and yours, whoe’er believe;
On his name whoe’er shall call
Freely shall his grace receive;
He is full of grace for all.

Therefore shall ye draw with joy
Water from salvation’s well;
Praise shall your glad tongues employ,
While his streaming grace ye feel:
Each to each ye then shall say,
Sinners, call upon his name;
O rejoice to see his day,
See it, and his praise proclaim!”

Glory to his name belongs,
Great, and marvelous, and high;
Sing unto the Lord your songs,
Cry to every nation, cry!
Wondrous things the Lord hath done,
Excellent his name we find;
This to all mankind is known;
Be it known to all mankind!

Zion, shout thy Lord and King,
Israel’s HOLY ONE is he!
Give him thanks, rejoice, and sing;
Great he is, and dwells in thee.
O the grace unsearchable!
While eternal ages roll,
God delights in man to dwell,
Soul of each believing soul.

Isaiah xii.
