Ecstasy, true word describing
Heaven’s joys forevermore!
Never-ending bliss extending,
No escaping that fair shore!
Evermore to think it over,
Did I do something right at last?
Nothing for which I can glory!
Nothing in my sordid past!
Everything I owe my Savior!
He is the One, He paid my way!
With His death He bought my pardons!
Nothing good have I to say–
For myself! I am not deserving
Of His love freely bestowed,
To the cross He took my burden,
Bore my sins that heavy load!
Do I worry about that burden?
Sins committed in the past?
Let us get serious, they are forgiven!
This joy will forever last!
Joy unspeakable and glorious!
Nothing here do I deserve,
All I want to do is worship,
Praise His name, and humbly serve.
Now I know the tears I am shedding
Are from the gratitude I feel!
But God dries the tears I am crying
And I wonder, is this real?
Yes! It is real! His Hand so tender
Touch my eyes and dry my tears.
Then His look, a smile to render
Joy! Such peace to banish fears!
God’s forever love now tending!
Yes, forever! There is no ending!
