Paul van der Bijl - AFRICA (Now shall my inward joys arise)

from Hollow Square Hymnal by Cardiphonia Music



Tune: William Billings, 1770
Words: Isaac Watts, 1709
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)


Now shall my inward joys arise,
And burst into a song;
Almighty love inspires my heart,
And pleasure tunes my tongue.

God, on His thirsty Zion’s hill,
Some mercy drops has thrown;
And solemn oaths have bound His love
To show’r salvation down.

Why do we then indulge our fears,
Suspicions and complaints?
Is He a God, and shall His grace
Grow weary of His saints?


from Hollow Square Hymnal, released February 11, 2016
Performed by:
Paul, Liam, and Adrian van der Bijl with Alison Tatum on violin.
arr. by Paul van der Bijl and Alison Tatum
