Joy Unspeakable (Hymn)

Joy Unspeakable
Barney E. Warren (1900)

I have found His grace is all complete,
He supplieth every need;
While I sit and learn at Jesus’ feet,
I am free, yes, free indeed.

It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Full of glory, full of glory;
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Oh, the half has never yet been told.

I have found the pleasure I once craved,
It is joy and peace within;
What a wondrous blessing, I am saved
From the awful gulf of sin.

I have found that hope so bright and clear,
Living in the realm of grace;
Oh, the Savior’s presence is so near,
I can see His smiling face.

I have found the joy no tongue can tell,
How its waves of glory roll;
It is like a great o’erflowing well,
Springing up within my soul.

Think about what it means to be a Christian.  We are forgiven.  We are saved from the wrath to come.  We are the very children of God.  We have direct access to the throne of the Father.  We could go on and on and on.  But when you start thinking about all of these things, you begin to understand that it truly is “joy unspeakable and full of glory!”

  1. Thank you, Ben

    What a wonderful privilege : Access to our King, forgiveness, heirs …. and “on and on and on.” Truly unspeakable!

    Thanks for the revelation and for the Sunday School memories 🙂

    God bless you,


  2. I loved this! There is a song by the Newsboys . . “You give me joy that’s unspeakable, and I like it, and I like it yaya.” Makes me wonder if it came from this hymn! God bless you Ben and thank you for sharing this Hymn!
