I'm So Very Glad
Copyright 2004 Ron Barnes

I'm so glad that Jesus came to me.
And I'm so very glad that He came to set me free
From all my worries and my cares.
I see His blessings everywhere
And that's why I'm so very glad.

Every day, He is always there for me.
And I pray that He will always be
The One who fills me with delight
And leads me with His guiding light
And makes me feel so very glad.

I was lost. I was tossed.
Didn't know which way to go.
Till He came, called my name
And He taught me what I had to know.
Now I've found solid ground
And a joy I never had.
And that's why I'm so very glad.

I don't care what the world may think of me.
He is always there even though they may not see.
I see His face and hear His voice.
I have to stand up and rejoice 
Because I feel so very glad.

There's a home that is waiting there for me.
He's sitting on the throne of grace and victory.
And I am walking free of sin
To a place where I can be with Him
And that's why I'm so very glad.


I am whole. And my soul is safe from Satan's touch.
He's my shield and I feel
That my Father loves me much too much
To let me ever be feeling lost, alone or sad.
And that's why I'm so very glad.

I'm so very glad that my name is in His book.
And I'm so very glad for the road that I took
That leads me to an open gate.
That's why I never hesitate
To say that I'm so very glad.

I'm so very glad to be one of His own.
And I have never had more love than He has shown.
He took my place at Calvary
And gladly paid the price for me
And that's why I'm so very glad.

He took my place at Calvary
And gladly paid the price for me
And that's why I'm so very glad.
