NOW WITH JOY MY HEART IS BOUNDING.

Froelich soll mein Herze springen

Now with joy my heart is bounding,

With delight

Angels bright

Praises forth are sounding.

Hark! hark! how the choirs of Heaven,

Through the sky

Raise the cry,

Christ to you is given!

He who’s mighty to deliver,

Goes that He

Earth may free

From all woes for ever.

God is man, man to deliver,

His dear Son

Now is one

With our blood for ever.

God in us must now take pleasure,

For He gives

Whom He loves

Far beyond all measure.

19

To redeem us He hath given

His own Son

From the throne

Of His might in Heaven.

Who Himself and Kingdom ever,

Giveth free,

Oh! could He

Drive us from Him?—never!

Will not God’s own Son now bless us?

He who loves

And removes

All things that distress us!

Had our human nature ever

By the Lord

Been abhorr’d,

He had been man never.

Had our Lord delighted ever

In our grief,

He relief

Would have brought us never.

All transgression He assumeth,

That we’ve done

’Neath the sun,

And our Lamb becometh.

As our Lamb His life is given,

So that we,

From death free,

May have peace and Heaven!

Now He’s in the manger lying,

Me and thee

Calleth He,

In sweet accents crying,

“Banish, brethren, what’s distressing,

All your ills,

All that falls,

I bring times of blessing.”

Come, and let us now go thither,

Let us all,

Great and small.

Flock in crowds together.

21

Love Him who with deep love burneth,

See the light

He so bright

Kindly on us turneth.

Ye who sink in deepest anguish,

Look ye here,

Joy is near,

Grieve no more, nor languish.

Cleave to Him and He will bring you

To the place,

By His grace,

Where no pain will wring you.

All ye hearts, oppress’d with sorrow,

Ye who feel

Sin’s sore ill

And conviction’s arrow,

Courage now! for One is living

Who hath skill

You to heal,

All your pain relieving.

All ye poor ones and distressèd,

Come—come ye

Take—’tis free,

Of His store so blessèd.

Here do all good gifts flow over,

Here is gold

Stores untold!

Here your hearts recover!

Gracious Saviour! deign to hear me,

And let me

Hang on thee,

Undisturb’d stay near Thee.

Of my life Thou art the Giver,

I through Thee

Joyfully

Live contented ever.

Guilt no longer can distress me,

Son of God!

Thou my load

Bearest to release me.

23

Stain in me Thou findest never,

I am clean,

All my sin

Is remov’d for ever.

For Thy sake I’m clean all over,

Thou dost me

Graciously

With fair raiment cover.

To my heart’s throne I will raise thee,

Glory mine!

Flow’r divine!

Let me love and praise Thee.

Diligently I’ll preserve Thee,

To the skies

To Thee rise,

Here live for and serve Thee.

With Thee I at last shall wander,

Joyfully,

Endlessly,

And in glory yonder!
