1. When lost in sin, I came to Christ my Savior,
Who for me on the cross did die;
He banished sin and sadness,
And gave me joy and gladness;
Now I’m running over with joy! joy! joy!

Refrain
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again,
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again;
He’s coming again, forever to reign,
He’s coming as King to reign.
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again,
Glory, glory, Jesus is coming again;

2. The world quite failed to give me satisfaction,
Though its vain pleasures I did try;
An aching void they gave me,
From which the Lord did save me;
Now I’m running over with joy! joy! joy! [Refrain]

3. And ever since I learned to live for Jesus,
Joy and peace came without alloy;
The Devil oft has tried me, but Jesus Christ inside me
Keeps me running over with joy! joy! joy! [Refrain]

4. Poor wandering one, astray in sin and sadness,
Come to Christ who can sin destroy;
Although you are so wretched,
His arm is now outstretched,
To save your soul and give you perfect joy! joy! joy! [Refrain]
