O How Happy Are They Lyrics
1 O how happy are they who the Saviour obey,
And have laid up their treasure above.
Tongue can never express the sweet comfort and peace
Of a soul filled with Jesus’ love.
We’ll all shout hallelujah
As we march along the way.
We will sing redeeming love
With the shining host above,
And with Jesus we’ll be happy all the day.
2 That sweet comfort is mine now the favour divine
I’ve received through the blood of the Lamb;
With my heart I believe, and what joy I receive,
What a Heaven in Jesus’ name!
3 ‘Tis a Heaven below my redeemer to know,
And the angels can do nothing more
Than to fall at his feet and the story repeat,
And the lover of sinners adore.
4 O the rapturous height of the holy delight
Which I feel in the life-giving blood!
Of my Saviour possessed, I am perfectly blessèd,
As if filled with the Heaven of God.
