1. Break forth, break forth, O joyful heart,
And make His goodness known,
Who all thy life, though undeserved,
Such love to thee has shown.

Break forth, break forth, O joyful heart,
Break forth, no longer silent be;
Break forth, break forth in grateful praise
To Him who came to ransom Thee.

2. ’Twas Jesus sought my wand’ring soul,
And with a shepherd’s care
He brought me kindly to His fold,
And still protects me there. [Refrain]

3. He is my advocate with God,
My Savior and my friend,
His mercies new with every morn
Like balmy showers descend. [Refrain]

4. My soul shall magnify the Lord,
My voice His love proclaim,
And every power within me join
To bless and praise His name. [Refrain]
