Full Text

1 My soul is rejoicing, and sweet is my song,
While onward to Zion I journey along;
No thorns in my pathway, no clouds can I see,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee.

Refrain:
Happy in thee, happy in thee,
My soul is rejoicing, my spirit is free,
And, oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee.

2 Thy presence is with me, thy image I bear;
Thy banner is o’er me, thy garment I wear;
The world and its pleasures are nothing to me,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee. [Refrain]

3 I walk in thy sunshine, I rest in thy smile,
And visions of glory the moments beguile;
Thy peace like a river is flowing for me,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee. [Refrain]

4 I know there’s a mansion preparing above,
Where soon thou wilt call me to feast on thy love;
Yet here while I tarry content will I be,
For oh, I am happy, dear Saviour, in thee. [Refrain]
