I WAS GLAD
the joy of entering His courts


(1) I was glad when they said 
"let us go to the house of the Lord"
I was glad when they said 
"let us go to the house of the Lord". Here is ---

Peace, hope, joy, love
Strength, pow'r, grace

I was glad when they said 
"let us go to the house of the Lord".


(2) All the days of my life how I long 
for the courts of the King
All the days of my life how I long 
for the courts of the King.   For His

Peace, hope, joy, love
Strength, pow'r, grace

All the days of my life
how I long for the courts of the King .


(3) When the Master appears in the clouds 
then the angels will sing
When the Master appears in the clouds 
then the angels will sing...      Of His -------

Peace, hope, joy, love
Strength, pow'r, grace

When the Master appears
in the clouds then the angels will sing.


(4) Soon forever in heaven with saints 
I will lift up His name
Soon forever in heaven with saints 
I will lift up His name...          He is

Peace, hope, joy, love
Strength, pow'r, grace

Soon forever in heaven
with saints I will lift up His name,  He is

Peace, hope, joy, love
Strength, pow'r, grace

Soon forever in heaven
with saints I will lift up His name.

Part of the "I Am Persuaded" collection

Also included in the New Kid's Collection

 

Inspired by a Mennonite church sign near my office that displayed the verse
"I was glad when they said ... 'let us go to the house of the Lord'" (Psalm 122:1).

Finished at my kitchen table, over breakfast, 
with the help of my daughter, Sarah Merrifield!

 

We are conducting a convention in District Sahiwal (I am the secretary of this convention)   
Our children and youth choirs are practicing your songs.    My Sunday school students will sing 
them during this convention,  so that the people may get blessings...  

Your songs are a great support to my ministries in Pakistan.  You can not know my 
inner feelings when I  suddenly received so many songs from your web site.

Our choir is practicing two songs, "You Are My Shepherd" and "I Was Glad",  in English.  
We are also doing those two songs in Urdu..   I would like to...  send you a recording and photo of our group.  
(two emails from Evangelist Samson, from Pakistan)

 

NEW!!!   Translated into PortuguÍs (Brasil) by 
Daniel Borges, from Sao Paulo, Brazil
PortuguÍs (Brasil) translation

 

We are missionaries in Romania and Ukraine and use these songs in our
daily family devotion time as well as  in the church here.  We sing them in English and
put the translation of Romania up on the wall so the congregation knows what we are singing. 

We have used quite a few of the songs from the website over the last few years.  When we were
pastoring in South Dakota we used
"I'm Grateful For The Cross" at each Communion service.
We continue to use this song in our devotions and in the Romanian Church where I preach. 

We are also going to have "I Was Glad" translated. (this is one of my very favorites songs!)
and we have used this in all of the churches we have pastored in.   

(Rev. Michael, from Romania)
