Joy is a fruit that will not grow
In nature’s barren soil;
All we can boast, till Christ we know,
Is vanity and toil.
A bleeding Savior seen by faith,
A sense of pard’ning love;
A hope that triumphs over death,
Give joys like those above.
These are the joys which satisfy,
And purify the mind;
Which make the spirit mount on high,
And leave the world behind.
No more, believers, mourn your lot,
O, thou who art the Lord’s;
Resign to those who know Him not,
Such joy as earth affords.
