I Am Happy in the Service of the King (Hymn)

I Am Happy in the Service of the King
Alfred H. Ackley

I am happy in the service of the King.
I am happy, oh, so happy;
I have peace and joy that nothing else can bring,
In the service of the King.

Chorus
In the service of the King
Every talent I will bring;
I have peace and joy and blessing
In the service of the King.

I am happy in the service of the King.
I am happy, oh, so happy;
Thro’ the sunshine and the shadow I can sing,
In the service of the King.

(Chorus)

I am happy in the service of the King.
I am happy, oh, so happy;
To His guiding hand forever I will cling,
In the service of the King.

(Chorus)

I am happy in the service of the King.
I am happy, oh, so happy;
All that I possess to Him I gladly bring,
In the service of the King.

(Chorus)

I’ve always liked this song.  It’s one of those tunes that gets stuck in your head and you find yourself humming it all day, which, in the case of this song, is a good thing.  The question today is this: are we really “happy in the service of the King?”  Sometimes we get weary in well-doing and lose that happiness.  If we will submit to Him and follow Him in loving service, we can experience the “peace and joy that nothing else can bring.”
