O Joyous Day That Fixed My Heart

O Joyous day that fixed my heart,
On Thee, my Saviour, dear,
O happy moment, gladsome thought,
That made my pathway clear.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Evermore my song shall be,
All my sins were laid on Jesus,
I’ve been redeemed!

Tho’ strangely won by sinful love,
My footprints deep in sin,
I heard the message from above,
And hastened back to Him. [Refrain]

He welcomed me with smiling face,
And sweetly bid me stay;
From such a throne of saving grace,
O may I never stray. [Refrain]

And so, thro’ all my length of days,
I’ll render praise to Him,
Who guideth me in all my ways,
And keeps me pure within. [Refrain]

And when at last my journey’s o’er,
When earthly cares are gone,
I’ll sing with loved ones on that shore,
The glad Redemption Song. [Refrain]
