For in my Lord I find true healing for my mind and all I have to do is ask.
He knows each burden of my heart, He knows when every teardrop starts;
I go to Him in prayer and always find Him there for He is my exceeding joy.
He'll be my exceeding joy ten thousand times ten thousands years from now;
For when He saved my soul and made my spirit whole He saved me for eternity.
He's building something just for me, He's promised in His Word I'll see;
That dwelling in the sky where loved ones never die, He'll still be my exceeding joy.
Jesus, my exceeding joy, no words I find to tell His worth to me;
He brightens every day in countless happy ways, His tender love I ever see.
He loves you more than you can know, He lived and died this love to show;
Now trust His living Word, receive Him as your Lord and He'll be your exceeding joy.
I count all things but loss, save Jesus and His cross for is my exceeding joy.

He Is My Exceeding Joy
