Isaiah 35:10
"And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion
with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads:  they shall obtain
joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighting shall flee away."

          Mankind is searching ev'ry day,
          In quest of something new;
          But I have found the "Living Way,"
          The path of pleasures true.

            Chorus
            I've discovered the way of gladness
            I've discovered the way of joy
            I've discovered relief from sadness
            'Tis a happiness without alloy;
            I've discovered the fount of blessings,
            I've discovered the "Living Word"
            'Twas the greatest of all discoveries,
            When I found Jesus my Lord.

          I've found the Pearl of greatest price,
          "Eternal life" so fair;
          'Twas through the Savior's sacrifices,
          I found this jewel rare.

            Chorus
            I've discovered the way of gladness
            I've discovered the way of joy
            I've discovered relief from sadness
            'Tis a happiness without alloy;
            I've discovered the fount of blessings,
            I've discovered the "Living Word"
            'Twas the greatest of all discoveries,
            When I found Jesus my Lord.
