Joy In The Camp

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

For years I traveled down a long and lonely road
Sorrow and pain my lot to bear
But then I met the Christ that took my heavy load
And since then I hear singing in the air

There’s joy in the camp, a sinner has come home
There’s joy in the camp rejoicing ‘round the throne
Singing and shouting the great redemption song
There’s joy, wondrous joy in the camp

The angels in Heaven are rejoicing ‘round the throne
Filling the lofts with chords so grand
They’re singing because of one lost sheep that just came home
I know there must be joy in the camp.

There’s joy in the camp a sinner has come home
There’s joy in the camp rejoicing ‘round the throne
Singing and shouting the great redemption song
There’s joy wondrous joy in the camp

There’s joy in the camp, a sinner has come home
There’s joy in the camp rejoicing ‘round the throne
Singing and shouting the great redemption song
Out of the darkness into the light
Out of my blindness to jubilant sight
Out of my sorrow to Heaven so bright
There’s joy, wondrous joy in the camp

Joy, wondrous joy in the camp
