Full of Joy and Glory

Based on 1 Peter 1:3-9
Lyrics & Music by Darby Hughes

“Full of Joy and Glory”

Lift rejoicing songs unto Christ our Lord and Savior
Raised to give us life anew in the Father’s favor
Our inheritance is sure: treasures of eternity
By the Father’s pow’r secure
Full of joy and glory

Let rejoicing songs repeat through our burning trials
That same hand which stokes the heat
Leads us through its fires
When the Son of God appears
We, the faithful, will receive
Praise and honor for our tears
Full of joy and glory

Chorus: Rejoice and wonder
With joy inexpressible filling our hearts
And bless the Father
In mercy He saved us, in power He raised us to life

Let rejoicing songs be heard
All throughout creation
Offered to the sovereign Word
Gracious in salvation
Though we have not seen, we love
Though we do not see, believe
Lift rejoicing songs above
Full of joy and glory

(Chorus)
